Launch of the "Black Swan Robust" & "QUANT" Apps in the Windows Store
Stock investing made saver by the launch of our new service in the form of the Black Swan App. The Windows Store is already open for public business since 2012-10-26. See the X-Index Fund Blogs on this site for explanations what the Black Swan App does and what the calculated 95% and 99% Value-at-Risk (VaR) means for your GOOGLE Finance portfolios. All I say here is that my preliminary estimation of a healthy portfolio's VaR-99% return% is ~ -3%, which in fact concurs with Reference When the VaR-99% of your portfolios is below this -3% (more negative) our advice is to sell losers and buy winners.
The Black Swan Robust app is also twice Microsoft awarded: Specially listed on Windows 8 Downloads and Editor's Pick:
Also is stock investing made easier by the recent launch of another of our services in the form of the QUANT v1. See also the X-Index Fund Blogs on this site for explanations what the QUANT does.
Of course you can still order X-Index technical analysis reports right here on this site. And we will continue the X-Index Fund Magazine; a monthly issued periodical, in blog form so you can comment it, for stock investors.
The next apps are already and about two month in the Windows Store. They perform not bad with regards to the average downloads and sales of the TOP5 (Finance sub category):
Windows Store: Wall Street Oracle v1 manual (freeware)
Windows Store: Wall Street Oracle v2 fully automatic ($2.99 for 180 days)
We got now three products X-Index $500 reports, X-Index $1000 reports and the apps. We are working to turn the X-Index Fund portfolio list, found by entropy ranking, into a new app. The X-Index brand name is given to the $500, $1000 and the Wall Street Oracle apps because we do home-made autocorrelation corrections here on the timeseries of stockquotes in the reported results.
You are invited to comment and discuss publicly the X-Index Fund, technical analysis and the apps in the blog.
The X-Index Fund, up coming fourth product, most likely as a Windows Store app, is about a new kind of technical analysis based on entropy measurements of stock quote distributions and it can be applied on any stock exchange. Although my preference is the Big Board.
The idea is that a selected collection of securities, by ranking on mathematical entropy figures (i.e. the X-Index), calculated over a recent bull period for each security, has a performance memory to a certain extent in a future bull period. On the scale of a whole stock exchange a top entropy ranking securities portfolio tend to behave just under the market qua performance and a down ranking one far above.
The X-Index Fund Magazine blog already gives some background material about this up coming new product:
insight in this new kind of technical analysis
tips and tricks how to use it
performance of typical securities and the X-Index Fund
- ideal buying and selling points of individual securities and the X-Index Fund portfolio
access to scientific X-Index Fund research papers
More than 70% of the NYSE stock investing is done by automated dealing in micro seconds (flash trading). These trades are initiated by the huge datacenters of the major investment banks around the world. Actually the X-Index is draining of the entropy from this whole interactive chaotic system of automated dealing.
This draining is done by curve fitting the public published historic stock quotes to a certain probability function (I like to call it Omega) and calculating mathematical entropy for each security (i.e. the X-Index). So you too can by means of the X-Index cycle relaxed along on the backseat of the high tech datacenters bike, making use of the ever increasing volume of collective knowledge in these neural networks.
The dealing algorithms of the datacenters could be individually tuned (i.e. made to behave "in sync") per institution to prevent any kind of stock market crash in the future. But do we then still talk about a free market (global) economy? Like measures have been taken to prevent the reoccuring of the "Flash Crash", this May 6, 2010 United States stock market crash in which the Dow Jones Industrial Average plunged about 900 points —or about nine percent— only to recover those losses within minutes, was the second largest point swing, 1,010.14 points and the biggest one-day point decline (998.5 points) on an intraday basis in Dow Jones Industrial Average history.
