Section: Data Visualization Technical level: Intermediate Session type: Lecture Status: Confirmed & Scheduled


To demonstrate different ways to slice and dice financial market data and economic numbers. From static charts to moving and interactive visualizations, we'll take a look at what markets have prompted investors, traders and managers to create in order to make sense of the madness.


Financial markets create massive amounts of data, from product documentation to traded prices. And you find that one piece of information is related to another, or depends on it or is otherwise correlated. The use of innovative techniques to visualize data is not just for eye-candy or appeal, but will hugely influence business or investing decisions. I propose to demonstrate what has been done and what you can do with market data.


An idea of what stocks and bonds are, some basic economic concepts like per-capita income and GDP.
