The confluence of social media and technology has led to a resurgence of retail investor trading activity in financial markets, whether it is speculation on meme stocks like Gamestop or cryptocurrencies like Dogecoin. The goal of this event is to explore the use of big data regarding retail investor order flows to understand the implications of this resurgence for financial markets and regulators. This panel is part of a series of events on the economic and financial applications of alternative data sponsored by Capital Fund Management (CFM) and Program for Economic Research (PER) at Columbia University’s Department of Economics. The panel will feature a lecture by Charles Jones, Robert W. Lear Professor of Finance and Economics at the Columbia Business School.
