Ask Rose: Quick Start

Learn how to use Ask Rose, natural language query system, to ask questions and receive charts in response.


  • Ask Rose is meant for queries of financial data (equities, macro, FX, etc) and only returns timeseries.

  • Each Ask Rose module is independent and refinements need to be made in the same module with a full query each time. This is different from other ChatGPT style LLMs that build upon previous responses.

Give Feedback

ask rose feedback button Below every Ask Rose module there is a feedback button where you can give the query-response a thumbs up/down rating. Thank you for any feedback - it greatly helps to improve our model!

Single timeseries

Starting simple with a single timeseries, we can ask about single equities, macro trends, surveys, exchange rates and more. ask rose example single

Multiple timeseries

To generate a chart with multiple timeseries, simply ask about independent concepts. You can also compare country level metrics by separating each country with "vs". ask rose example multi


The Ask Rose model is built on over 100 Rose transformations that can be applied through natural language. ask rose example transforms

Tips for Good Prompts

While we have already addressed a lot of syntax edge cases to allow for flexibility in queries, it is a constant work-in-progress that will scale as we get more user input. As such, here are a couple of prompting Dos and Don'ts to ensure the best output.


  • Query Ask Rose in an explicit manner with respect to financial objects
    • "10y yield” is better than just “10y"
    • “Vanguard Value ETF (VTV)” as opposed to “Vanguard Value”.
  • When querying for multiple objects, it’s helpful to clarify what each individual object is
    • Great: "Give me the 30 day rolling correlation between Apple returns and Microsoft returns"
    • Good: "Give me the 30 day rolling correlation of Apple vs Microsoft returns"
    • Okay: "Give me the 30 day rolling correlation of Apple vs Microsoft"


  • Ask for non-timeseries values
    • “What is the Sharpe of QQQ?”
      • Try: “Give me the 180 day rolling Sharpe of QQQ returns” instead.
    • Remember, Ask Rose does not yet return singular values.
  • Ask for data that falls too far out of the realm of finance.
    • Ask Rose is a domain-specific model that we chose to train on our large internal database of finance and finance-adjacent data, instead of the Web, to ensure maximum accuracy in a finance-specific context.
  • Be surprised if a query can very occasionally yield two different answers when ran twice.
    • Our model, like most LLMs, is not purely deterministic (but we try to make it as deterministic as possible).

Most importantly:

  • Give feedback on the output you got using the feedback button! We are constantly looking to improve Ask Rose.
