Good evening everyone,
I am a student who is actually studying finance at university. I am a beginner in mql5 programming and I was wondering if it was possible to connect the MetaTrader platform to a Twitter account for data analysis.
The aim of my project would be to analyse datas from a twitter account (for example Donald Trump's account) and recognise automatically some words and consequently take positions in the financial market.
For example, if Donald Trump would tweet " we are gonna to take some sanctions against the Russian market " our program would automatically recognise some words like "sanctions", "market" and "Russia" and place a short-order on the market (for example on the MOEX Russian Index)
If someone could help me by explaining me how to do that I would be grateful or give me some courses in mql5 I would be of course ready to pay.
Thank you for your help.
Unfortunately and I was looking after such an API few days ago, you'll need to use an external dll.
Unless if you're ready to code it yourself - but I doubt otherwise you'd be learning programmation, the auth process is difficult - there's no way to collect tweets in MQL without a DLL. At least I didn't found one for myself.
But it's a great idea, an alternative would be RSS feed.
Except the auth process for which there's no documentation & with no authentification, the whole API is useless.
If someone feel chatty enough, it could translate it from one of these libraries.
