The data set comes from our working paper "Tweet Sentiments and Stock Market: New Evidence from China", including the stock prices, number of stock-related tweets with different emotions at different days.
It shows the closing price of Shanghai composite index (SHCI), volumes of Tweets with different sentiments and two indices based on the Tweets. The first column shows the time, covering the period of 2014/06/03-2014/12/31. The second column is the SHCI of each trading day. The 3rd-8th columns are the numbers of Tweets with different sentiments, including anger, joyful, disgust, fear and sadness. The 9th column is the number of Tweets with negative sentiments. The last two columns show the indices of Agreement and Bullishness.
