Signals Service

Identify the trades that count

Our Signals service is at the core of
what we do. As a specialist research provider, we monitor the high-quality transaction data produced by our analysts, based in three different time zones, in search of significant trade characteristics.

With around 3,000 transactions reported each day, most are non-discretionary and very few are likely to provide a meaningful indication of future share price movements. Those that do are hard to find but not uncommon.

We apply quantitative and qualitative methods in order to identify the most significant transactions. Our research team provides insights and commentary on trades that are most predictive of future share price performance.

experienced research team

Experience, supported by rigorous historic data interrogation, gives us the know-how to identify the trades that count.

We begin by filtering transactions that do not meet our tried and tested criteria; this yields a shortlist of trades that do not conform to regular patterns.

We study whether these trades align with convictions made by insiders and try to ascertain whether they possess insight into the future share price of the stock they are trading.

Signals Performance

Factors we consider

We consider multiple factors within this process including but not limited to:

  • The proceeds and holding change that the trade accounts for
  • Key trade features, such as the proximity to a close period or trading embargo, and share price highs and lows
  • The overall means of the insider, their position and tenure at the firm of which they are buying and or selling shares
  • The trading record of the insider, sometimes including their trading performance related to other stocks
  • Trading patterns of other directors at the same firm

Timely alerts

When it comes to data, we are more concerned with quality rather than quantity.

By customising delivery, in such a way as to suit the preferences and needs of the user, we can ensure that the frequency of alerts received provides our clients with the most pertinent of facts related to their investment process.

Desktop alerts draw attention to key trades and give users the ability to look behind the headline content with comprehensive filtering and display tools.
