The patent, “Method And System For Communicating Financial News,” outlines methods pertaining to automated voice reporting, structuring customized news headlines, and graphically representing financial news on a user device.

“It’s no secret that structured data is the future of Wall Street, and making decisions quickly is key,” said Kevin Evenhouse, NewsHedge founder and CEO. “Our methods deliver structured data in the formats its been proven human beings react to fastest—visually and audibly.”

NewsHedge believes its technology will soon become the standard used within many different types of financial applications. “Being awarded a patent is the ultimate validation for us,” said Evenhouse.

The recently issued patent, in general, covers three primary innovative methods:

Automated Voice Broadcasts: Using text-to-speech technologies, NewsHedge methods verbally reports breaking news, number releases, social trends, and notable trading events among thousands of other possibilities.

Customized Headlines: NewsHedge methods use a combination of data sources to automatically curate, populate, and form one simple, informative headline. (E.g., “XYZ Company Replaces CEO, Shares Active on News, Trending on Twitter” This sample depicts two additional sources of information: Original News Headline + Market Data + Social Data.)

Graphical News Data: NewsHedge methods visually represent news data as graphics. Data such as news type, source, ranking, sentiment, relevance, impact, novelty, and word count, among many other possibilities, are depicted using images or a combination of shapes, colors, numbers, and/or letters.

As financial data continues to grow and expand, NewsHedge’s patented methods will play a critical role in helping traders, buy-side analysts, and hedge fund managers discover and make sense of real-time information.
