Tomorrow’s Markets (Part 2)

We’re now 3 days into the experiment, not the best start, but that was to be expected. Day one’s predictions we’re essentially halved, “boasting” an accuracy of ~45%. However, as mentioned, there should be a 72 hour layover between the predictions of sentiment based algorithms and actual market trends; Thursday’s picks should in actuality, be indicative of tomorrow’s markets. Both Thursday and tonight’s predictions (for tomorrow) are posted below.

A quick disclaimer: I am NOT a stock broker, equity expert, nor am I an advisor of any sort. I am not licensed nor am I in any way remotely qualified to pick stocks. This is a personal experiment and should be viewed as such.
