The Greeks had destroyed Persia, Troy, Egypt, Syria, Phoenicia, Babylon, Bactria… It’s the European Union’s turn.

A Superstitious Fund

The Superstitious Fund Project is a live one year experiment where an uncanny algorithm or SUPERSTITIOUS AUTOMATED ROBOT will trade live on the stock market. The financial instruments it will be using will be spreadbetting on the FTSE 100.

The superstitious trading algorithm will trade purely on the belief of NUMEROLOGY and in accordance to the MOON. It will for example have the fear of the number 13, as well as generating its own beliefs and new logic for trading

According to Finviz, short float on (Yahoo! – 403 Forbidden — error 403It has come to our attention that this service is being used in violation of the Yahoo Terms of Service.

This particular piece is a parody on Van Gogh. Not the master himself, but we gotta start somewhere!
