By looking at a specific topics (rather Keyword) people search for on internet by using Google search, the new analysis can tell you is the stock market is headed for a crash?

As per the study by the National Academy of Sciences, researchers from Warwick Business School & Boston University have created a method to identify search terms that precede a stock market crash. They have developed algorithms to identify the trend based on search engine. The algorithms based on Wikipedia into different financial topics such as “management,” “business,” & “bank). The institute has done extensive research based on these algorithm & then consulted Google Trends to find spikes in business- and politics-related queries. Based on their study, they have found “rise in certain terms” which can predict stock market falls in advance.

Basis of the Study

Search engines “Google” record everything we search for. Google has supreme leadership position with 114.73 billion search queries or have around 65.2 % market share. China search giant Baidu has 8.2 % and Yahoo has around 4.9 percent%. The method shows that increases in searches proceeded falls in the stock market. Based on Google Search optimization, the researcher applied an appropriate set of keywords related to finance.

Records of these search queries allow the research to learn about how people gather information online before making any investment decisions in the real world. So, there is a link between search & action. These data certainly help to finds trend from what large groups of people may do.
