Machine learning (ML) is the tool you need to take investing to the next level.
The term may sound intimidating, but it’s actually simple.
ML is the usage of algorithms to imitate the way that humans think.
It can learn and make predictions millions of times faster than humans, and with high accuracy.
ML is transforming nearly every industry.
Businesses are using it in areas like self-driving, virtual assistants and cyber defense.
And Wall Street has been using it to pick stocks for decades.
Some of the biggest hedge funds, like Renaissance Technologies and Bridgewater, can attribute their success to ML.
Despite its prominence on Wall Street, most retail investors have had no access to it … until now.
A Barrier to Entry
ML requires computing power and large amounts of data, which can be expensive and hard to come by.
Plus, users typically need a background in coding and statistics just to understand it, let alone create their own algorithms.
These factors have created a barrier to entry for most retail investors.
But our team has worked hard to change that.
We spend tens of thousands each year on high-quality data and technology, so you don’t have to.
Machine Learning Offers a New Perspective
ML should have a place in every investor’s arsenal.
For starters, it takes the emotion out of investing.
By relying on algorithms and computer predictions, ML eliminates emotions like “the fear of missing out.”
This can bolster returns, since these emotions cause investors to make irrational decisions with their money.
Plus, ML offers a new perspective for investors.
In the blink of an eye, it can identify market patterns and trends that aren’t apparent to humans.
And as the ML models get more data, they can improve themselves.
This means that over time, a ML strategy can get even better.
So make sure to watch Ian King’s special presentation on ML this Thursday.
