Interestingly, the best performing model was that which used 138 disaggregated alternative data series, with a prediction of 0.43%. The true month-on-month change in the CPI was 0.41%.
With an increasing number of internet users moving away from traditional internet channels like desktop computers and towards mobile-only use, app usage data can offer hugely valuable insights into consumer behaviour and company performance through a variety of key performance metrics.
Alternative data is an asset class of information that has come into being off the back of the broader data explosion. Traditional financial data relies on information from company filings, investor presentations, media coverage, historical market prices, etc, which are now commoditized and easily accessible on financial databases. Alternative data can come from a plethora of sources, including satellite imagery, GPS tracking, transactional data, sentiment analysis of social media and news feed, etc.
