About

Stat Bliss Inc. is a data analytics and visualization platform for financial traders and investors.  We are traders who were looking for a way to track and visualize alternative data.  We didn't find what we were looking for at a reasonable price point, so we’ve decided to address the void in the market and build a platform just for traders to work with data. 

Until now, you had to spend thousands of dollars a month to have access to this depth of information. Only the big players had the capital to get it or the manpower to build it.

What we're building is ready to roll - no need to connect API’s or juggle data from one platform to another.  A trader’s time is more valuable than that. We’ve built this platform to make your life easy. Get data, get trading, and be done for the day.

We're all accustomed to using tools like scanners, watch lists, and alerts.  If the price drops, we get an alert.  But what if recalls spike, stores are mobbed, or social sentiment tanks?  Now you can watch for signals deeper into the data, and get alerts when there's value to be gained. 

Our mission is to open up big data for all the traders who want access to data insights. You'll have point and click ease of use, and it will be reasonably priced - for an individual instead of a large financial institution. You can choose your data set and time frame, visualize it, and learn how to apply it to your trading all in just a few, easy steps.

Today with big data is like 40 years ago with the first electronic charts, with traders just trying to make sense of it all.  In 10 or 20 years, everyone will be trading with data, and their will be a whole new crop of indicators based on the data. The hedge funds and investment banks have been using big data for over 10 years. Unfortunately, for the rest of the retail trading world, and even for some professionals, it has been out of reach.

But the tide is changing, and soon you'll be behind a step if you don't have this data.  See what ThinkAdvisor wrote about AI and alternative data, just a few months ago.

There will be a monthly fee of no more than $49, plus additional costs of $5+/month for subscribing to extra category modules not included in the standard monthly fee. Customers will pay only for the data they use, to keep costs down for everyone. 

What Is Included In The Standard Fee? 
Lots.  See the details in the chart near the bottom of the page.

Unlike some general data visualization platforms, Stat Bliss is catering to traders with actionable information plus the analytics tools most useful to traders. It will have information you can put to use in your trading right away.

And unlike some big name data aggregators, you won’t have to deal with importing and exporting each individual data feed into a separate visualization platform. We eliminate the hassle of working with each data feed individually. We build it into the visualization platform to make it a simple, quick and cost effective solution for traders everywhere to gain valuable insights from big data.

To protect our intellectual property, Stat Bliss is patenting the technology the business is built upon.  It will protect the investors interests and it only makes sense in the long run.

Want to experience the complete suite of features? Scan the data for specific requirements, develop a watchlist of your favorite stocks, and build alerts to be notified when the data meet your criteria. You can do so risk free. No money required.  

ALTERNATIVE DATA
What is foot traffic, social sentiment or alternative data? The internet and social media host an abundant amount of information on public companies useful to traders and investors alike. This data can be counted, quantified and compared against historical data to develop patterns and see relationships in how a big name retailer, restaurant chain, logistics company, airliner or almost any public company, is faring over time.  

INVESTING 
Are you an investor? Alternative data can give you valuable insight into the strength of a company over time. Set a time horizon and visualize with the analytics platform and see if those patterns match accurately with your personal predictions on the financial outlook for the company. It may be the best statistical data you never used before.

EARNINGS
Do you like to trade earnings? Earnings season is four times a year and it is when companies release their quarterly reports to the public. Will their profits be higher or lower than last quarter? Alternative data can give you insights into multiple data points of that company’s financial health over the previous quarter and be the data you need to trade earnings with success.

FINANCIAL DATA
What is unusual options activity or insider trading? In short, both can be thought of as ways to follow the smart money. How about following corporate events, such as a merger of two public companies or when a private company decides to go public? When two public companies decide to merge together into one company or one public company buys out another public company, these events can have a big affect on the underlying price of a stock, both short and long term. Its not unheard of to see a stock price jump or fall 10%, 30%, 50% or more even because of an M&A event. Either way, its still good information to use at your discretion.  

INVESTING 
Are you an investor? Financial data can give you valuable insight into how the "smart money" is expecting a stock to move over a specific period of time in the future. Set a time horizon and visualize with the analytics platform and see if those patterns match accurately with your personal predictions on the financial outlook for the company. It may be the best statistical data you never used before.

EARNINGS 
Do you like to trade earnings? Earnings season is four times a year and it is when companies release their quarterly reports to the public. Will their profits be higher or lower than last quarter? Financial data from insider trading and options volumes can give you insight into which direction "smart money" is placing their bets on for that company’s earnings announcement and be the data you need to trade earnings with success.

ACTIVE TRADER
Are you an active trader? M&A activity are big events and when big name public companies file notices about these big events, get ready for action in the underlying price of the stock. Want to be alerted as soon as an announcement is made? You can do that with Stat Bliss. Build alerts around any data indicators you want; Social Sentiment, Foot Traffic, Auto Recalls, Insider Trading, you name it!  

Risks and challenges

Software Development Risks

We're building a new software platform. That comes with risks. We're well on our way to a working prototype, and we have a realistic development timeline. Still, it's reasonable to expect that we'll encounter bugs and setbacks.

We have a solid development team that has delivered complex and data intensive web projects a number of times before. Even with the complexities of developing software, we're confident in our team.

Retaining Staff

One of the challenges of this project is having the staff. We need people with an understanding of data, understanding of the market, and skills in building a scalable solution for consumers. Right now, we've got the team we need to take this product to market. That's great, but there's potential exposure there too. What if we lose a key player? We're working to keep everyone incentivized, and we've got some redundancy to cover our bases.

Exposure to Data Providers

Data is expensive. That makes building and maintaining an application that runs on data expensive. We've run the numbers, and it all makes sense currently, given realistic assumptions. We anticipate the cost of data dropping as time goes on, and more data to be available in the marketplace. But maybe we misread this one, and the cost of our data will go up, or one of our providers will make an important change in their terms. We don't think it's going to happen, but it's possible.

Data Legality

Another challenge for Stat Bliss is sourcing the right kinds of data useful to traders. As licensed professional traders, we know what data is acceptable and not acceptable for traders to have and use, as well as where to find it. All the data imported to Stat Bliss is all publicly available information, taken from the troves of online resources that are readily accessible to the public. All data will be "safe" for traders, and never contain any material, non-public information.

Competition

If Stat Bliss is successful, it will no doubt give rise to copycats who want to copy the business model. To curb the spread of copycats and protect our technology, we are 1) patenting the technology used to build the platform and 2) offering a white label solution to anyone interested in building a business around their own brand using our technology.
