Fact Check Categories

As it can be highly profitable for companies and individuals to create fake stories and rumors regarding the financial markets, we have decided to launch a platform where we can cover anything related to trading with fact-based reporting, while also cracking down on widespread rumors, and categorizing them based on the amount of truth they contain.

Positive

True

The rumor is true, and there is enough evidence to be marked as true.

Mostly True

The rumor is true, but not entirely correct, meaning that you will find a "What's False" section under the post, which will help you understand what's incorrect about it.

Neutral

Mixed

The rumor has close to equal amounts of truth/lies behind it, and you can find both of them under the post.

Not Enough Info

Although we could rate this post as one of the five other categories, there is not enough evidence for this post to fit into any of them, so we will mark it as Not Enough Information.

Negative

False

The rumor is false, and there is enough evidence to be marked as false.

Mostly False

The rumor is false, but not entirely incorrect, meaning that you will find a "What's True" section under the post, which will help you understand what's correct about it.
