NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 12, 2023--

S3 Partners, a leading financial data marketplace and workflow platform that revolutionized the market with its singular short interest data, today announced the addition to the Bloomberg App Portal of S3Black Map, the latest evolution of S3’s platform that gives users an unprecedented level of visibility into long and short market sentiment and positioning and the potential for drawdowns.

Black Map enables managers to solve for three pressing questions when evaluating individual positions or an entire portfolio:

On a daily basis, users can filter by industry, sector and cohort to quickly see which stocks in their portfolio are crowded and how the rest of the market is positioned.


“Black Map is a true breakthrough in how institutional investors can identify and cure crowded trades with the potential for significant drawdowns, which will improve their Sharpe and Sortino ratios, help them identify the market’s dry powder, and analyze market momentum and opportunities,” said Bob Sloan, Managing Partner and CEO of S3 Partners. “Facing lower market volumes, fewer names to trade, and growing assets under management, individual trades can make or break strategies for active managers. Black Map gives them the clearest available view into how a user is positioned versus the market.”

Black Map is available immediately through the Bloomberg App Portal via {APPS BMAP <GO>} on the Bloomberg Terminal.

Applications contributed to the Bloomberg App Portal are evaluated and selected using a variety of parameters, chief among them the ability for the application to add value to Bloomberg’s existing feature set and information resources. The App Portal gives Bloomberg Terminal users access to dozens of third-party software tools for news and social sentiment analysis, technical charting analysis, data visualization, and more.
