Ask Kensho: If Netflix beats...

CNBC's "Fast Money" is running a new series called #AskKensho. Kensho is a market data analytics system that can find answers to more than 65 million question combinations by scanning over 90,000 customizable actions.

Those actions can include things like earnings releases, global data environments, economic reports, company product launches and FDA drug approvals. It can check stock price triggers, like when a specific stock or asset is up 10 percent in one day, what usually happens the next day?

Here are some sample questions that have already been tackled on "Fast Money" by Kensho:

•When Netflix beats earnings, how do shares of Amazon historically perform the next day?

•How does Apple typically trade before and after original product releases?

•How do the big banks trade the day after the Federal Reserve's stress test results are released?

•Which retail stocks were the best performers from Thanksgiving through the end of the year over the last 10 years?

If you have a question for Kensho, tweet us @CNBCFastMoney using #AskKensho or send us a message on Facebook at We'll be answering them live on the air during the 5 p.m. ET hour of "Fast Money."

Disclosure: NBCUniversal, parent of CNBC, is a minority investor in Kensho.
