Made a sentiment analyzer for stock market posts

After seeing several algorithms that used the Psychsignals data set on Quantopian I decided to create a sentiment analyzer. This script counts the positive and negative words in a post and prints out the overall sentiment. Right now I'm just using copy and paste to load the post text into the program, that part could be automated with API access though. This script is pretty simple, there are more effective ways to do sentiment analysis but they're harder to code.
