Crunching ‘big data’ for trading signals is real and already happening. Very few of us have the time and skill to shift through mountains of data for nuggets of golden information. The average person will have to have some basic knowledge of how the stock market works and take control and actively manage his or her own portfolio. Applying algorithms to improve your trading is far more developed. The rise of computing power lets smart companies crunch ‘big data’ — billions of gigabytes of photos, tweets and other crowd-sourced info — to dig needles of price-sensitive news out of the haystack. We are now in the AG (After Google) age and with that access to information is only a search away.
