StarMine Awards for Most Accurate Forecasters in Reuters Polls
The LSEG StarMine Awards for economic indicators and foreign exchange rates recognises the firms and forecasters who provide the most accurate predictions for economic data releases and FX Rates in the Reuters Polls during a calendar year. The awards are announced in February of the following year.
The StarMine SmartEconomics® model assesses the historical accuracy of each contributor forecaster at every point in time on every poll in which the contributor provided a forecast.
Access the Reuters Polls and related StarMine SmartEconomics data exclusive to LSEG via the LSEG Eikon or LSEG Workspace desktop and also via the LSEG data feed products. Discover market trends and use the predictive data to generate alpha in your investment and trading strategies.
Reuters Polls are surveys of expert opinion, offering views of what top forecasters in the financial markets are thinking, traceable to a particular reporting period.
Forecasters include economists, financial market analysts/strategists and researchers from both the buy-side and the sell-side.
Polling time-series data is available for both consensus estimates and individual polling contributor data, covering over 2,200 indicators - including polls for economic indicators (both short-term and long-term), foreign exchange, central bank interest rates, commodity indicators, money market rates and bond yields, global stock markets, house price inflation and asset allocation.
StarMine provides unique value-added analytics and predictive financial modelling, designed to improve investment and trading decisions, and to help manage risk.
Grounded in sound economic intuition and backed by rigorous analysis, the StarMine SmartEconomics model provides a SmartEconomics Forecast for Reuters Polls to help achieve higher returns.
The period-by-period, first release nature of the Reuters Polls data allows the StarMine SmartEconomics model to generate the SmartEconomics Forecast, by weighting individual polling contributor forecasts more highly if they have a track record of higher relative forecast accuracy.
The SmartEconomics Forecast is thus a weighted average of the Reuters Poll and predicts the possibility and direction of an economic surprise in relation to the consensus forecast, with a 61% accuracy rate.
