Announcing the Third Annual Quandl Data Conference

The industry-leading event for data-driven investing is coming in February. Our co-founder and Chief Data Officer Abraham Thomas shares why he is particularly excited by this year's conference.

Och-Ziff, Eton Park and Elliott Management are said to have tracked J&J’s private jet landing near pharmaceutical company Actelion’s Switzerland headquarters in mid-January. Days later J&J announced a $30 billion acquisition of Actelion, resulting in $300M in upside for these three...

UPDATE: Iron Ore in a Meltdown?

UPDATE: We recently published an updated report on our iron ore monthly insights, featuring our Q1 estimates for each company. Our monthly report is released two to three weeks earlier than public company data. We currently distributed our monthly report on FactSet and Thomson Reuters.  Back in November, the Chinese government imposed regulations on steel production to curb the pollution in areas surrounding Beijing. We predicted that the restrictions would pull the players in iron ore industry in opposing directions: While the general reduction of steel production would reduce the overall demand for iron ore, the intense crackdown on domestic...
