About CNBC Trading

The CNBC Trading dataset by Quiver Quantitative tracks the recommendations made by media personalities on CNBC and their historical performance. The data covers over 1,500 US Equities, starts in December 2020, and is delivered on a daily frequency. This dataset covers recommendations made on Mad Money, Halftime Report, and Fast Money.

This dataset depends on the US Equity Security Master dataset because the US Equity Security Master dataset contains information on splits, dividends, and symbol changes.

Algorithm Example

class QuiverCNBCsAlgorithm(QCAlgorithm):

    def Initialize(self) -> None:
        self.SetStartDate(2021, 10, 1)   #Set Start Date
        self.SetEndDate(2021, 10, 31)    #Set End Date
        self.symbol = self.AddEquity("AAPL", Resolution.Daily).Symbol
        self.dataset_symbol = self.AddData(QuiverCNBCs, self.symbol).Symbol

        # history request
        history = self.History(self.dataset_symbol, 10, Resolution.Daily)
        self.Debug(f"We got {len(history)} items from historical data request of {self.dataset_symbol}.")

    def OnData(self, slice: Slice) -> None:
        for cnbcs in slice.Get(QuiverCNBCs).values():
            if np.mean([cnbc.Direction for cnbc in cnbcs]) > 0:
                self.SetHoldings(self.symbol, 1)
            else:
                self.SetHoldings(self.symbol, 0)
