Summary/Abstract: Behavioral finance assumes that individual financial decisions are influenced by emotions and mood. A public sentiment and its effect on collective decision-making have been studied in a number of publications giving the vast variety of research design. This paper examines various techniques in measuring market sentiment and its applications in analysis of financial data. Using a qualitative, exploratory approach, the study identifies trends in sentiment indicators and also tries to analytically categorize heuristics and behavioral biases connected to public mood.
