Effect Technologies, Inc., maker of the patented EffectCheck® software for emotional analysis of communications, has introduced yet another upgrade to EffectCheck. The upgrade provides subscribers with the ability to assess the lexical emotional impact of the minutes from the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) with respect to anxiety, hostility, depression, confidence, compassion, and happiness.

"FOMC decisions drive the stock market," said Dr. Yanon Volcani, CEO and Co-Founder of Effect Technologies, Inc. "We've now examined all of the FOMC minutes from the last four years with respect to their levels of anxiety, hostility, depression, confidence, compassion, and happiness. Now subscribers to EffectCheck will be able to assess the minutes from FOMC meetings and assess any changes in lexical emotional impact from one meeting to the next."

EffectCheck is the only patented software that provides lexical analysis of words and phrases from a 50,000-word emotional thesaurus within an easy-to-use online editor, and provides subscribers with the opportunity to explore word substitutions, word impressions, and understand the flow of lexical emotion in their communications.
