Geosense Custom Builds Market Tracking Indices

Geosense Russel Tracking Index

GeoSense builds market tracking indices, the first of which is benchmarked to the BlackRock iShares Russell 2000 ETF (ticker: IWM). The training data for this model includes a broad combination of macroeconomic, environmental and socioeconomic factors, and the index exhibits a statistically significant relationship between these independent variables and the dependent variable: in this case, IWM. The GeoSense tracking model has selected variables related to inflationary pressures including energy prices (primarily oil and natural gas), the Consumer Price Index (CPI), the USD/RMB exchange rate, and the base metals complex as market drivers. The tracking index shown here includes a one-month forward projection. This is not calculated using rolling averages, but rather by incorporating a feature selection algorithm. We will soon extend the forward view to include one, two and three-month forward projections.​
