Investing can be a complex journey, with data playing a vital role in making informed decisions. However, accessing the right information at the right time can be a daunting task. That's where OpenBB Bot comes in. With OpenBB Bot, users can effortlessly access financial data within their own communities, right at their fingertips.

For example, imagine you're interested in obtaining the AAPL daily chart but have never used the bot before. This used to be a daunting task to look at hundreds of commands and figure out the best one to run. Now you can simply do /askobb daily apple chart and we take care of the rest. We even give you the command you could run in the future from our OpenBB Docs.

OpenBB Terminal

This is what we are announcing today, you are now able to request investment data using natural language, just like having a conversation with a knowledgeable assistant.

This is in part similar to Midjourney modus operandi where users need to be on their Discord and run the command /imagine with a prompt explaining what sort of generative image they are interested in to access the output. In our case you’ll run the command /askobb with a prompt of the type of financial data you are interested in accessing from our own OpenBB Discord server.

Understanding User Intent

Natural language processing (NLP) has made significant advancements in recent years, empowering machines to understand and interpret human language.

By leveraging NLP techniques, we can bridge the gap between investors and the vast ocean of financial data. Instead of constructing complex queries or spending hours reading documentation, users can simply ask questions in everyday language and receive accurate and relevant responses. This approach democratizes data access and makes investing more accessible to a wider audience.

To make our system understand natural language queries, we need to build a strong foundation of code that accurately understands user intent. This involves training machine learning models with large amounts of investment-related text data to recognize patterns, context, and meaning. But what if there was a different approach?

What if we could directly convert natural language into a command that retrieves financial information? That's exactly what we achieved with our OpenBB Documentation, and this is similar to what we announced last week with the new askobb feature on the OpenBB Terminal which you can read about here.

Soon we will release a blogpost on the technical details of how we leveraged OpenAI and LlamaIndex to achieve this feature.

Example Queries and Responses:

Let's explore a few examples of how users can interact with our natural language-based investment data retrieval system:

/askobb chart of AMC


/askobb tsla flow


/askobb max pain for tsla today


/askobb tsla 15m chart



At OpenBB, we're dedicated to integrating AI into our products and revolutionizing the investment experience. By leveraging NLP, we bridge the gap between complex finance and everyday investors, empowering them to make informed decisions. As we refine natural language queries, the future of investing becomes brighter, inclusive, and user-friendly.
