Financial Data + Algorithms + Charts + Apps = Insight let's you view financial time-series data and manipulate them using mathematical operators. You can also view corporate filings and click on a label to pull up the associated data as a time-series or to compare among peer companies. It includes macroeconomic data from extensive online datasets, time-series data from all US filings and market data from exchanges across the globe. All of these time-series can be analyzed using algorithms we make available over a web interface. 

ThinkNum analysis engine is powered by a semantic web connecting over two thousand data sources. This data can be analyzed by an ever growing library which currently exposes over a thousand data analysis algorithms. - Intersection of Mathematics Computer Science and Social Sciences

Thinknum brings financial data from a variety of useful sources together on one platform. We use this data to develop applications. We currently support two applications - ThinkNum Plotter and ThinkNum Cashflow Model. Developers can access all of our data through our API. Our data is organized around expressions, which we describe in a later section of this article. Thinknum's API is documented at API documentation.

Data: ThinkNum includes a lot of data that we hope would be useful for econometric analysis. We have data from over 2000 data sources. One can browse the data at

Operators: Users can manipulate any data one our site using mathematical operators. So for example you can plot the 2 year/10 year spread by typing yield@10yr-yield@2yr in the expression window. More complicated Arbitrary math expressions also work - the point being many users who do not code would know math and can explore data using math expressions. 

Wesley R. Gray, PhD, says "I predict that technology is going to disrupt the entire financial services economy. Technology will democratize financial knowledge and data, which will allow investors to peek inside the massive conflicts-of-interest box we call “Wall Street.” Once investors are educated and empowered, fees for financial planning will be cut in half. The days of “two and twenty” will be limited to uber niche and highly specialized asset managers. Fees for financial data services will be cut in half (watch out Capital IQ, Factset, and Bloomberg). On the prediction that “Fees for financial data services will be cut in half (watch out Capital IQ, Factset, and Bloomberg)” I present a new tool produced by Greg Ugwi. Greg is a Princeton graduate and worked at the Vampire Squid (Also known as Goldman Sachs). He’s developed an unbelievable tool for fundamental investors called"  Read more about it at: provides a platform for doing counter-factual data analysis. Traditionally investors have relied on Wall Street analyst projections of companies intrinsic values but with the new spreadsheet-like Web App ‘Cash Flow Model’ from, individuals can easily build their own models. Wall Street analysts typically do not disclose the models used in arriving at their buy, sell or hold recommendations. Users can view and change any formula or assumption that drives the final valuation. This would help you in fact-checking and in conducting 'what-if' analysis. Google DCF 3 Statement Model is an example of a model I built recently for valuing Google's stock. To get started all a user needs is a ticker. The application is completely free. You can view and change all of the formulae used in the model and no longer need to rely on buy/sell recommendations from stock brokers and Wall Street analysts who refuse to disclose their opaque proprietary models. Models can be saved online, downloaded into spreadsheets and uploaded from spreadsheets.

Given a ticker, this application can be used to compute the intrinsic value of the associated company. Financial Model of Google is an example which computes the intrinsic value of Google. The model pulls historical data for the balance sheet, income statement and statement of cashflows from corporate filings. Based on the specified growth assumptions, the model projects cashflows that would accrue to equity investors. Finally the intrinsic value of the company is computed by discounting the cashflows at the appropriate discount rate. Using this application, users can build models for multiple companies as opposed to traditional spreadsheet models where the hard-coded data must be updated manually. Cash Flow Model - Predict the Future of any Company by altering the Input Variables.       

A cash flow model is a tool for translating projections of a company’s future operating performance like revenue growth and costs of goods into an intrinsic value for the company. Without viewing the assumptions underlying a model, a leap of faith is required in order to use the model’s outputs. With Thinknum, users can view and change any formula or assumption that drives the valuation. The interactive nature of the application allows users to conduct ‘what-if’ analysis to test how sensitive a company’s valuation is to changes in a specific performance measure. 
Google DCF 3 Statement Model pictured above is an example of a model I recently built for valuing Google’s stock price. If you disagree with my assumptions of Google’s revenue growth you can simply change those assumptions and compute the new value. DCF models can be used to make rational investment decisions by comparing the model’s intrinsic value to the current market price. 
One important caveat is any model is only as good as the assumptions underlying it. We provide data from over 2,000 sources in an attempt to place proper context around companies and help analysts make the best assumptions based on all the information available. ThinkNum users can plot any number in the cash flow models over time. Visualizing numbers over time and comparing metrics across the industry help users gain insight into the company’s historical performance and how such performance might vary going forward. For example, simply type total_revenue(goog) into the expression window to pull up the total historical revenue for Google. You can then click on the bar graphs to pull up the corporate filings used in the charts. We are excited about the role the web can play in helping us make better decisions by rationally analyzing available data.

To get started, all that is needed is a stock ticker. After entering the ticker, Thinknum displays a model using the mean of analysts’ revenue growth projections. We load the historical numbers for the company’s balance sheet, income statement and the statement of cash flows from corporate filings.  We then use the growth assumptions to project how the company’s financial performance will evolve over time and how much value will ultimately accrue to shareholders. Users can modify the model or build one from scratch. Users can also download the models into Excel spreadsheets.

Just enter a Ticker Symbol like 'GOOG' above and see what happens. Given a company ticker, a user can compute the intrinsic value of a stock using Discounted Cash Flow Analysis. All future assumptions/predictions can be 'diddled' by you, as computations are done on the client side using javascript. On top of this, it gives users the ability to leverage multiple financial equations as well as decide how many statements they want to use as a base line model.

Functions: has an advanced user interface in which users can specify functions which they would like to perform analysis on right off of the ThinkNum website.  ThinkNum maintains a high level of credibility in how these functions are implemented in that they list all of the code that enters each of the functions so that there is no behind the curtain ambiguity.    Function Current Liabilities to net worth ratio - amount due to creditors can easily generate a wide range of charts using data names to identify which data sets to use and functions to define how to modify the data sets.  For example:
 For example: Say you were interested in how google stock price is moving with respect to the S&P 500.  You want to compare both the daily rate and the 30 day simple moving average and have them plotted on the same graph.  The following command will do this. sma(^spx,30);^spx;sma(goog*2,30);(goog*2); sma is the "simple moving average" while ^spx specifies the  S&P 500 with goog Google and the 30 is the 30 day moving average.  Note, I have multiplied the Google by 2 so that we can see them more clearly on the same graph since the stock price of Google is about half that of the S&P and price scales are arbitrary generally.

function: sma(^spx,30);^spx;sma(goog*2,30);(goog*2); has dozens of other functions. You can browse the function library here:

In addition, ThinkNum has released an R package called "Thinknum" with the single function "Thinknum" which allows for time series data to be imported directly into R.


goog <- Thinknum("goog")
plot(goog, type="l")

Functions are used to encapsulate one or more computational operations. In order to use a function, a user needs to specify the function name, and, optionally, arguments or parameters. An example is correl(yield@2yr, yield@10yr) which is a function used to compute the Pearson correlation between 2 time-series, in this case - the 2 year interest rate and 10 year interest rate. For documentation of the functions we currently support, please see    Function Linear Regression Linest gs spx     Function price to earnings PE     Function SALES Corporate Finance returns net sales revenue  Bank Cash Assets at Fed Reserve - Banks are still not lending

ThinkNum has historical and current market data on equities, interest rates, exchange rates, commodities, real estate and much more. All of ThinkNum's market data is free, with no restrictions on its use. Economics data on ThinkNum comes from a variety of reliable and credible sources, including the IMF, the World Bank, the US Federal Reserve, central banks and government statistical agencies around the world. All data on ThinkNum is guaranteed to be the freshest possible version of that data, brought to you directly from the original publisher of that data, with link-backs for validation and transparency.

Investors have traditionally relied on Wall Street analysts for projections of companies’ intrinsic values.  Wall Street analysts typically come up with their valuations using Discounted Cash flow (DCF) analysis. However, they do not disclose the proprietary models used for arriving at buying, selling or holding recommendations. ThinkNum has a solution which allows users to build their own models. 

Thinknum's Data Sources: Market data on ThinkNum comes from a variety of reliable and credible sources:
Primary Sources: Nearly 100 stock, futures and commodity exchange, clearing-houses and trade organizations
Secondary Sources: Data aggregators including Google and Yahoo Finance, and newspapers like the WSJ and the Nikkei, central banks, regulators, statistical agencies and other government or quasi-government organizations
ThinkNum is a collaborative effort. If there's a dataset or source that you would like added to ThinkNum's markets portal, please let them know.
This page lists a few of ThinkNum's "major" data sources. In addition to these sources, ThinkNum has many more "minor" sources with less than 100 datasets apiece. All dataset counts are approximate.

PLOTTER: The plotter is used to display the data associated with a particular expression as a chart. Users can format the chart and save their settings. Each saved chart is associated with a unique chart ID. The chartId can be used to reference the formatted chart at a permanent URL as shown at Charts can be embedded in iframes as shown Users can organize multiple saved charts in sets. For example, I organized the various metrics I track to gauge home prices at Home Price Indicators.     Blog JPM Putback Risk    Blog Mortgage Putback Risk abs15g Dodd-Frank rule Blog Steelcase Trading Near Its Implied Price

ThinkNum indexes financial data by exposing it to a simple application programming interface (API). It serves as a financial analysis engine that brings information typically found in Wall Street to an open platform. The engine connects to over two hundred data sources, and can be analyzed in a library with over a thousand data analysis algorithms. It provides users with curve trade and regression functions, among other algorithms from academia and quant trading. The company currently offers two applications for investment decisions: ThinkNum Plotter and ThinkNum Cashflow Engine. ThinkNum Plotter manipulates time series data using mathematical expressions and analyzes data without writing code. ThinkNum Cashflow Engine views discounted cash flow models online. All assumptions in the model can be changed by the user.

Expressions: Expressions are central to our applications and our API. Expressions allow users to reference and manipulate ThinkNum data without the need to write code. Expressions also enable third-party developers to run analysis on our servers through a simple API.

An expression is a combination of data-tickers, arithmetic operators and functions.
sma(trace_abs_ig@px.wavg,30)-sma(trace_abs_nonig@px.wavg,30) is an example of an expression. This expression references the spread between the thirty day simple moving averages of investment grade and non-investment grade asset-backed securities' prices.    Chicago Fed National Activity Index

ThinkNum's goal is to give Main-street investors a simple-to-use charting tool that taps into some of the macro-level data that the big boys have at their fingertips. In researching this post, I learned there are other econ graphing tools available on the Web: for example, the World Bank has a nice plotting tool on its site, and a world-famous Princeton blogger favors a charting tool from the Federal Reserve Bank. What ThinkNum has going for it is that it lets you create interactive and embeddable graphs using very simple commands.  The Wolfram Alpha comparison is a not a completely unfair one, and in fact  it was part of the inspiration behind ThinkNum. Though it doesn’t have Alpha’s natural language capabilities, once you learn the macro commands–or you can simply click on their helpful tree of time series data–you can then assemble it all in Alpha-like fashion into more complicated algebraic expressions. For example, to graph the spread between 10 and 2 year treasure rates, you subtract one variable from the other. ThinkNum also provides basic statistical functions–moving average, linear regressions, etc. In my own experiments, I found a remarkable relationship between GDP and capacity utilization: when one rises so does the other. Seriously, you get the idea: use ThinkNum as an econ sketchpad to work out your own ideas, and also share your creations with others through ThinkNum’s gallery feature. ThinkNum also provides web APIs, allowing its data to be fed into other apps. It also has attracted R users through its own package, which means you can then let this statical language’s enormous machinery take over. - See more at:    Chicago Fed National Financial Conditions Credit Sub Index  Chicago Fed National Financial Conditions Index     Chicago Fed National Financial Conditions Leverage Sub Index   Chicago Fed National Financial Conditions Risk Sub Index    Chicago Fed National Non Financial Conditions Leverage Sub Index    Coincident Economic Activity Index for the Texas     Coincident Economic Activity Index for the United States    CredAbility Consumer Distress Index for Housing    Credit Mortgage outstanding RMBS and CMBS     Cumulative Mortgage CMO Issuance Non Agency     Daily Treasury Yeild Curve Rates 20 year - Real Yields are Negative     Demo Video Basic Introduction      Demo Video Creating and Sharing Charts    Equities - Profits - Apple Vs Google Vs Microsoft    Equities - Research Expense - Apple Vs Google Vs Microsoft      Equities - Revenue - Apple Vs Google Vs Microsoft    Equities - Stock Performance - Apple Vs Google Vs Microsoft    Gold Fixing price 3 PM in london Bullion Market USD    Google Business Overview    Govt Credit Outstanding Munis Treasuries Agency Mortgages    Home Price Index for Los Angeles California    ISM Manufacturing Inventories Index    JP Morgan facing Putback Claims by Investors says FDIC is responsible   JP Morgan facing Putback Claims over 150 Billion from WAMU and Long beach   Mortgage REITS are levered - Puny Capital Vs Assets    Mortgage REITS Total Liabilities Vs Repo - Increasing use of Repo Funding    Nonfarm Private Goods Producing large Payroll Employment    Nonfarm Private Goods Producing large Payroll Employment    Nonfarm Private Service - Providing Small Payroll Employment    One Month Treasury Constant Maturity Rate
Data Tickers: Tickers are simply symbols associated with a data time-series. A data ticker is a generalization of the traditional stock ticker: goog is a stock ticker that can be used to pull up Google's stock price, while goog@revenue.q is a data-ticker that can be used to pull up Google's quarterly revenue. You can browse the 10 million data-tickers we currently index

One drawback to referencing data using tickers, as opposed to free-form names in a natural language such as English, is the initial hurdle new users face in familiarizing themselves with the chosen symbology. In our view, this initial cost is minuscule when compared with the power data-tickers unleash by allowing users to analyze data without having to write code. Our users typically do not interact with data-tickers directly but rather use tickers in the context of interactive applications.

Classic arithmetic operators can be used to manipulate Thinknum time-series data. For example, in order to reference the two year ten year spread, a user need only type yield@10yr-yield@2yr. ThinkNum pulls up both time-series, joins them based on their respective dates and subtracts the values on each date to come up with the correct output.
In general, operators and data-tickers can be arbitrarily combined. is an application that demonstrates the value of operators in more involved use-cases.    PMMS 30 Yr FRM Interest rate National - USA   REITS increased Agency Vs Non-Agency Holdings - Herding Accelerating   Simple Moving Average sma ABS Customer Sells Volume Market data  St. Louis Fed Financial Stress Index   Total US Debt in System - No Deleverage   Wall Street Deleverage - Assets Increasing Vs Liabilities DATA SOURCES
