Life happened. I got super busy, then had two surgeries, then changed jobs.
I moved coding to R. I’m currently taking some Coursera courses in R to master R.
I wrote the bit of the bot that handles all of the API stuff. I can pull data and place buy/sell orders. I coded a few technical indicators.
Bot will be done whenever it’s done at this point. Feel free to unfollow me, if I’m cluttering up your follow list.
I was just looking for a safe place to hold my money for a bit. MSFT is a save play, opposed to my usual triple penny lottery picks.
Finished the Encog book. Downloaded a dataset from TD Ameritrade, working on structuring and training the network now.
I decided to use Encog over Neuroph after seeing some bench marking done on the two which showed that Encog is about 10x faster. I downloaded the jars and stuffed them into the bot’s classpath so they’re ready to use.
Now, I’m reading up on Encog 3. I’m pretty familiar with Neural networks, so it’ll just take me a while to read up on this specific framework, then I’ll begin structuring the network
Anonymous said: Hey! I'm leaving the country for a few years to volunteer, I'm looking to try and make a little money via investing instead of just just letting my money sit in a banks savings account while I'm away. Lol I'm aware you are no Suze Orman but from your experience would you recommend me dabbling in stock investment with little experience or familiarity with the stock market? That robinhood site perhaps?
Not even a little bit. If you’re new to investing, I’d suggest playing around with it to learn, but only with money you could afford see turn to nothing if you screw up.
Investing (especially my style of it) is like gambling. If you wouldn’t gamble with that money, you shouldn’t invest it either.
The bot will tweet it’s actions in real time to @PennyStocksBot. I coded up the twitter bit today. Next, I’ll try to tackle the Neuroph part.
