Your Overview of Data AdditionsA quick run-through of the highlights for the last two weeks of additions
2016 US Election-winner predictions
At this stage, news of the US general election is ubiquitous, seemingly more so than usual, if that’s possible. So if ever a data addition was au courante, this one would be the dictionary definition of the word: US election-winner data from PredictWise, producing a new prediction every 2-3 minutes (frequency is daily in the application). If you’re not familiar with PredictWise it’s good to know that they analyze individual level- markets, polls, and historical- data (big data), with a primary focus on markets. For those of you who can’t stand the suspense, you’ll find the answer you’ve been looking for in the chart below. Note that the example shows the probability of each candidate winning, rather than the margin by which they will win.
If you’ve trained your eye on what’s happening in the UK after the now less talked-about, but still relevant Brexit, you may be interested to know that you can easily look up BOE MPC meeting dates in the application. Not something we’re going to make a pretty chart of, but definitely worth marking in your calendar.
