I received the following message in my mailbox today, I thought it was worth sharing:
I'm starting a project related to predictions in financial markets. Firstly with European indices (cac40, Belgian index, German) and precious metals (fixing / auction in London: www.lbma.org.uk)Every day, I tweet my forecasts @hack_ws. So far, 66% of good predictions (70% for precious metal)Next step : programming an API which delivers prediction through HTTP (REST)
true trading success from signals requires automated trading from the signals, without human interpretation and process. Sending signals over twitter for actual execution has too many points of failure, the first being the human reading the tweet.
