Bloomberg suggests they may no be having the success many envisioned.
Big data is a catchall phrase used to describe a broad variety of information derived from social media sites like Facebook and Twitter, Google searches, online customer purchase information, and even satellite photos. However, it's unclear many hedge funds have been able to reliably use this information to their advantage.
In one example, funds used to dealing with conventional financial filings tried to understand the impact of a foodborne illness on Chipotle's sales. Rather than waiting for quarterly sales guidance, they chose to study location apps that indicated foot traffic was declining. The problem is this overlooked an important fact; in the winter months many customers chose to have meals delivered instead of venturing in to Chipotle.
While hedge funds also had difficulty predicting the 2016 election or Brexit, they do sometimes connect. For example, start up hedge fund Predata claims it has correctly predicted attacks on North African oil fields and various political moves in Europe.
Still, as many hedge funds rush to higher scientists specializing in big data analysis, it's less than clear many will be able to filter the noise and develop profitable trading strategies.

With the UK threatening to leave the EU, hedge funds are seeing an opportunity to profit from correctly predicting the outcome of the EU referendum.
Several hedge funds are planning to conduct exit polls, at a cost of around half a million dollars a piece, to help them gauge the odds of the UK withdrawing from the EU. Presumably this information could allow these hedge funds to place large bets on currency markets.
According to Financial Times "A strengthening pound will be associated with a swing to ‘Remain,’ while a weakening in sterling versus the dollar and other currencies would be seen as a boost for ‘Leave.’"
According to The Wall Street Journal, currency markets indicate that traders believe heavily the UK will vote to remain in the EU: "Across options and futures contracts, speculators have nearly erased their net short sterling positions, according to data from the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission."
'Hedge funds have asked for exit polls and for hourly polls on the day.," according to one pollster, 'Banks are certainly commissioning polls for their own consumption that are never released.'

On January 15th the USD/CHF was trading at 1.02. By the next day it was trading at .85. An almost unheard of spike of over 15% for a traditionally somewhat stable currency. And many hedge funds, we found out, were short the Franc.
According to Forbes, a couple of the big losers in the trade are London-based COMAC and Everest Capital in Florida. And yet the greater irony may be that COMAC, which claims to only have lost 10% on the year, is closing down its global macro fund. Why? Surely 10% losses shouldn't neccessitate such a draconian move. Except that high-water marks and incentive fees now mean that the managers of that fund have a lot of work to do to start earning their fees. And apparently its a whole lot easier to just start over.
