Abstract

Financial markets are particularly sensitive to information, in which good or bad news have a strong impact, as well as declarations by key economic, financial or political figures, in the form of bull markets or bear markets. This research paper approaches the role of inference and argumentation in financial discourse in the crisis of 2007-2008, and specifically to the concept of jumps in newspaper articles of specific dates published in The Wall Street Journal.
