A couple of months ago I wrote about a project that would use classifiers to predict tomorrows stock market. I’ve now found some time to implement the very basics, a database with stock history, +3000 classifiers trained on this data and some simple classification scripts.
Instead of waiting, pondering and validating that everything works properly I’ve decided to do this “live”, starting to predict what may happen with some of the stocks for today. There are probably some corrections that will need to be done on the way to see if this is working or not (bug fixes etc).
I’ll select stocks that seem to have been working well to for classification in the past, I’ll probably present 100 of them per time.
