StarMine SmartEconomics

An overview of StarMine SmartEconomics 

StarMine SmartEconomics takes StarMine’s proprietary SmartEstimates® methodology and applies it to forecasts of macroeconomic data and FX rates to create a SmartEstimate of economic data that is more accurate than the simple consensus forecast.

StarMine assesses the historical accuracy of each contributor at every point in time on every poll in which the contributor had a forecast. The indicator-specific StarMine historical accuracy score for each forecaster then determines the weight that each forecast receives in the SmartEstimate.
