Hi, I'm a trader on financial markets, quantitative researcher and developer of trading algorithms. I'm not a user of Wolfram products yet. I've red the book NKS and found it very interesting at all, and expecially about some cellular automata having universal-computing capabilities. My intent is to develop something like a function() coding such an automaton, taking as input a normalized series of hystorical prices, and giving as output a forecast of next day price. The automata's rules should be set by a genetic algorithm, working on a training set of hystorical data. I'd love to know if someone of you is working on something like this. If you please, you can take a look at my job at www.co-re.it
Thanks - Marcello Calamai
Very interesting, but what this all has to do with cellular automata?
