In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
There is a huge problem with this study: The hindsight bias of knowing that debt was the cause of the crash and the extent to which debt was a problem in 08. Effectively what this is doing is shorting the dow in 08 and going long other times. I would be interested how this algorithm preforms from 09 -12 vs the dow. Rather than just seeing how it shorts 08 when everyone is googling debt. Or for comparison maybe choose to test on 98 - 2006 - at least this would control for a crash not completely based around debt. In reality this strategy is just telling us something we already know - there was a debt crisis in 2008.
A simple multiple linear regression problem with searched keywords being used as one variable in the regression equation. What's the big deal ? The video could be of not more than 5 mins to explain this.
This is a very primitive means of predicting the market, manually putting in words and seeing what the result is. Put a supercomputer to the task with all the information at hand, and allow it operate beyond just individual word searches and find correlations between multiple words/phrases and market movements and allow it the freedom to learn how to best respond to these things to maximize profits and you'll be rich. I wouldn't be surprised if people are already secretly doing this.
Been pondering using sentiment and public opinion as a neural input on a trading model, and I have come to the conclusion that it's not significant. People have already voted, and that's reflected in price. Measuring the sentiment of mostly ineffectual people, as a input to speculative trading, it seems almost pointless. I agree there may be value in trading noise, but they have almost no effect (it would seem) of the real things that move markets. In other words, I prefer to align my (longer term) trades with fact, not opinion. Also, any suggestion that the public is always wrong (or right) is nearly baseless. Discuss
This was great, thanks, I've been looking for "how to forecast stock prices" for a while now, and I think this has helped. Ever heard of - Sanames Stockify Scripophily - (do a search on google ) ? Ive heard some pretty good things about it and my mate got excellent success with it.
it's not too much trouble for your own particular advantage, any place you go over declarations of traders who work with Mrs casey's strategy, trust it,I use to have such a great amount of uncertainty until I reached her, I am winning what I believed was inconceivable,rather than questioning,get in touch with her and see for your self.

Yes, of course Warwick, you can predict radical uncertainty, unexpected shock, and human irrationality with past data. The formula is y^ = b0+b1x(t-1)+(please go back to YouTube analytics + focus on the next viral video)
I did my final year academic project on Financial predication using artificial neural network(ANN) . In this project we applied Functional Link ANN( FLANN),having different expansion for the prediction of two different indices. We collected some old data from BSE and feed it into the network. The learning process was repeated over 3000 times and the entire simulation was done on Mat lab software.
only stupid poeple wants to get rich. the wise poeple are already rich. i see most poeple commenting this have got the focus on the money and not on information presententet. Remember that wisdom gives you a great well paid job wich makes you financialy happy... or unhapppy.. it depends on how you decide to use the money you earn and how adicted you are to having money. Using the google information to get welthy requires that you can handle the huge information amount and no human can handle it all on it´s own. this means it is only usefull for machines in now a days. for that reason we got neural networks and work on making computeres faster and faster wich can help making decissions based on big information... but in the end... it does not work if poeple like me are idiots at programming those networks. the interresting thing in this conferrence is that the information needed is out there , but it needs to get treated the right way. computeres are already trading with this inforrmation.... so the real questiuons is just....should private poeple try to beat computers or not.... i know that computers are so much smarter tahn the human so my answer is NO. spend your money on living instead and take a real job you can control. Let the smart guys beat you as they always will. ;)
Predict the stock market? Technology? Associate Professor of Behavioural Science & Finance? OK, scientific research IS (or at least MAY BE) useful for performance (a good example is Renaissance Technologies). But finally it is the track record, what matters. That's why my motto: show me your track record first and if it is impressive and you are so generous that you disclose something about your strategy, I will capture every word of yours.
But if you don't have a track record, sorry, you can talk whatever you want, no interest from my side!
I am 48 year old, work as a data scientist at a big bank, also day trade on the side on my phone and still have a set of hair. I can still out bballing 70% of recent college grads that my company hires. LOL
Well yeah... I play poker online and I can tell ALLL about what people will do. I starting with the choice of their picture and then go to what details are in the picture. I can tell so much about them that I win the games if I stay. Sometimes I get bored and get out of the game. PEOPLE ARE SO PREDICTABLE. ALLLLL PEOPLE. ALLL
wow, what a collection of banal comments. Clearly the content went over the heads of those commenting. Presumably they are looking for some kind of spoon feeding.
Presentation is statistically sound,undeniable, impressive use of big data.
Why not just say you are doing this through Affiliate Marketing or are you sharing the specific techniques, scripts, and apps you use? Genuinely curious, unless there is a different user that disappeared from Pokemon Trading and suddenly reappeared a few months ago to do Affiliate Marketing.
Technology has empowered everybody..its really as big as you can make it and goes as far as you can take it..People are getting in contact with hackers to help them predict the stock market,clear student loans,expunge criminal records,upgrade university grades,bank accounts and other debts,fix credit ratings,double your tax return and help hack business competitors..contact [email protected] You need a savvy hacker though,one who would be able to carry out and successfully execute hacks on your behalf while keeping it all discrete and under the radar.
he does not have access to that information in real time. All the data he used was historical. Google doesn't even allow you to do too many searches on the same term in an hour (I wrote a C# program for that and almost got my IP blocked. This kind of thing is called data scraping). I believe that if someone could use real time google information (Like a "real time google trends") it'd be possible to profit with a similar strategy as the one presented in the video.
billion dollar ideas whilst wearing a 20 dollar suit and dayum get a hair stylist bud.ok so looking for profitable terms on google has brought you success? ffs never do the search for how often people type in porn youd be a overnight gazillionaire
I actually look the Google Trends up, and looked up the Dow Jones, S&P 500 and Nasdaq. But it doesn't work. I don't know why he claims this. Maybe it only works when it is really going bad with the economy.
This is fascinating. Can his Google team check any combination of terms against subsequent stock market moves? I'm thinking 'ISIS', 'Ukraine', 'Ebola' and so on may be quite successful. But 'Dollar Crash' might be the one which is the black swan event lol.
THIS IS POOP...until I can SHARE it! I don't know exactly why I'm being constrained from SHARING this video, but it sure is stupid!! This is data others need to be aware of!! Beep it and whoever has limited its sharing! ;/
How can someone this stupid be so full of himself. Maybe you should learn to properly articulate what you mean before make a fool of yourself. But apparently you stopped going to school after elementary school. No wonder you sound so fucking stupid.
Give yourself a big prize for being the stupidest person online today.
You STILL haven't thought about it.
Yeah, you can type, but you apparently can't think. It must suck to be you.
Did you ever think that perhaps at the time I first mentioned it, it WASN'T shareable?
I mean really, how truly stupidly lazy are you?
Actually, I don't care, but you should.
Get a brain, and leave me alone, idiot.
This is the second time I've told you to leave me alone. I'm reporting your stupid ass.
Grow up, stupid. Thanks.
I know this is going to be tough for you...but I'm going to ask you to actually use your brain for a moment.
Did you think about this at all before asking another for the answer?
Did you consider the various possibilities?
I don't think you did.
Go ahead and think about it for a while, and maybe several possible answers will come to you...or not.
In a time of increasing change and uncertainty, we must be clear on what will not change to not get distracted.

The Biggest Mistakes in Managing a Portfolio.
The Biggest Mistakes in Financial Planning Series.
by Harvey Jacobson, CHFC, MBA, CLU.
Investors who have remained consistent with their risk profiles through volatile markets have seen a substantial recovery in their portfolios since March 2009. Those who are truly behind are those who panicked and are now left with the decision of how to recover their losses. They can, but it is a much slower recovery.

When the right people on the right teams have the right context, they naturally do the right thing.
