Any opinions on applying machine learning or genetic programming to the world of trading and stock market forecasting?

From a newsletter subscriber:

People program machine learning instances.  People are fallible.  Machine learning is extensible.  Behavioral blips in the random noise.


This came from:

After discussing with REAL PROFITABLE LONG TERM TRADERS, they don’t use machine learning and genetic programming. Here is one discussion:

Discussion about machines learning cannot predict the markets because it’s 100% random, pure math can help but NOT guarantee – See more

” no one knows, many fail. i only follow one person but just that simple video will make you rethink on all machine learning mumbo jumbo”

Listen, I purposely posted a video about the gamblers fallacy which a machine cannot really adjust for since the markets are 100%. I could be wrong but you know, I DO THINKTHERE ARE MORE IMPORTANT WAYS TO FORECAST THE MARKETS. I call it pure math and that is what I am learning through Khan Academy.

Hi i there My name is Bryan Downing. I am part of a company called QuantLabs.Net This is specifically a company with a high profile blog about technology, trading, financial, investment, quant, etc. It posts things on how to do job interviews with large companies like Morgan Stanley, Bloomberg, Citibank, and IBM. It also posts different unique tips and tricks on Java, C++, or C programming. It posts about different techniques in learning about Matlab and building models or strategies. There is a lot here if you are into venturing into the financial world like quant or technical analysis. It also discusses the future generation of trading and programming Specialties: C++, Java, C#, Matlab, quant, models, strategies, technical analysis, linux, windows P.S. I have been known to be the worst typist. Do not be offended by it as I like to bang stuff out and put priorty of what I do over typing. Maybe one day I can get a full time copy editor to help out. Do note I prefer videos as they are much easier to produce so check out my many video at
