Using VIP's Network Extractor on ETF Data

In this notebook, we demonstrate how you can use VIP's Network Extractor to create a network dataset from a tabular spreadsheet of Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) data. This dataset has a mixture of numerical and categorical features, which works well when extracting a network. We can then use the network to understand which ETFs are similar to each other, which could help find patterns for stronger or weaker investments.
