The study of how emotions and expectations influence financial markets is known as sentiment analysis.
Short-term market movements are frequently driven by sentiment.
Sentiment indicators help to contextualize prices by determining the current status of the market.
Tracking mood provides traders with a forward-looking view of the market rather than depending on previous data, which can lead to hindsight bias.
Traders will utilize emotion indicators to determine the direction of a trade, and then technical indications or price action will be used to determine when to enter and leave a trade.
