"Titan has a suite of proprietary quantitative and qualitative research which factors in dozens of human emotional reactions ranging from euphoria to panic,” said John Coulter, CEO of Titan. “The system also ingests social media stock data from Twitter, Yahoo, Google, financial blogs, etc. and assigns each stock with a sentiment score which adds a qualitative element able to gauge a ‘buzz’ on how the stock is perceived by the general public. Registeredrep.com has created a Finance 2.0 portal which offers a new take on market data and research. Titan is excited to have our products available in this new medium.”
