Trump Mood Predictor

A fun web app that predicts the mood of the next Trump tweet.

It was used as a marketing tool and an illustration of the power of sentiment analysis for the stock market for my first startup. It is known that markets are driven by the so-called animal spirits of fear and greed. During the Trump presidency, his actions and tweets were moving the markets and rippling throughout the economy. We built this web app to illustrate some of the unstructured data processing and modeling techniques that we used to predict stock market volatility.
