7 of the Best Stock Market Bots to Follow for Trade Ideas, Earnings and More

As bots get smarter and faster it only makes sense to look at how they might impact the stock market. Over the last few years some remarkable bots have been created on StockTwits. In this post we’re going to share several of them with you:

1. TradeIdeasQuant – This was one of the first bots to enter the StockTwits ecosystem. It shares alerts when any stock is making a big move. That includes price and volume. The bot they created goes by the name Holly and she sometimes says things like “BOOM!” and “There Goes The Dynamite!”Screen Shot 2016-04-14 at 10.08.19 AM


2. FilingsAnalysis – If anything ever gets filed with the SEC, and it’s about a publicly traded company, this bot is going to surface and post that document.

3. Estimize – A must-follow for everyone interested in earnings and earnings predictions. Estimize shares earnings predictions from traders and investors across the country. You can also connect your StockTwits account to Estimize. This Estimize bot will then alert you about your predictions and how they rank compared to your peers.

4. EarningsCast – Pretty much every single earnings call, when it happens, will be shared right here. When JP Morgan Chase reported earnings the other day, this bot dropped a link 10 minutes before the call started.

5. ARatings – Each day research firms, banks, and brokerages publish reports and recommendations about specific stocks. It can be hard to follow all of these updates. But that’s where this bot has gained a ton of attention. If an upgrade, downgrade, buy or sell recommendation happens it will be shared with you here.

6. TipRanks – The bot above is pretty cool right? But should people even trust analyst recommendations? That’s how you should use the TipRanks bot. It scores analysts. So if a prediction or recommendation is made, TipRanks will track the performance. Analysts get ranked on a 1-5 star basis depending on how accurate their calls are.

7. PsychTrade – There’s almost no other bot like this on the Internet. PsychTrade crawls the web looking at social media and news about a stock. It then scores the sentiment between these two sources as positive or negative. This information gets shared as a chart, which you can see as an example below. The first pane shows the price of a stock and the bottom pane (red line) shows how social and news sentiment has changed over time about that stock.
