The wisdom of the crowds has been used to better predict world events, elections, and the outcomes of sporting events. It’s now being used for more accurate forecasting of stock prices. Instead of following experts, crowdsourcing investment ideas seeks to assess what the masses think about a specific stock. The crowd is frequently more accurate in its predictions than top analysts?.
Enter Social Media
But with the onslaught of investors publishing their thoughts on stocks and the market on Facebook and Twitter, it’s hard for investors to monitor all the noise. Determining what the crowd thinks about a specific investment is tricky. Therefore, we’ll also explore different ways that investors can effectively plumb the wisdom of the crowds to build a portfolio populated with stocks the crowd thinks are going up.
What if there was a way to leverage the collective knowledge of all investors out there and use it to make a profit? What if you could build a portfolio that took investment ideas from the throngs of day traders and couch-potato investors, firemen and police officers, lawyers and doctors—a population of millions of investors? Figure out where the herd mentality thinks profits are and damn the experts.
Tradestreaming is that way.
