How I prepare incoming data

Mats Bengtsson mib over the years

when data arrives, I try to automate most of the data screening

I subscribe to data from Börsinsikt which means that I get a lot of data, and some extra breath indicator values and similar.

Even so, I automatically add calculation of some indexes and breath indicators of my own. All of these data are stored in a Metastock database. Then I calculate all trading signals based on today's data (currently 94 signals). All of these are fed into a neural network (actually a number of neural networks), which acts like a voting system based on buy signals developed and tested in EasyLanguage. This network outputs recommendations on the stocks to screen.

In a similar manner, a number of calculations are done on the stocks that I currently own, and warnings and recommendations for stop limits and suggested sells are output.

With all that done, it is now my turn to view the stocks, together with the recommendations and the different indicators I like to use. This forms the basis for the buy/sell decisions I take, on which I will act the following day.


Never trade stocks without having tested your system. In fact, most trading systems are not profitable if tested over many stocks. Full story...

Do not invest in heating equipment without having compared the alternatives, not only to current situation, but also to each other. Full story...
