This should serve instead of introduction, right? :-)
Relying on state of the art artificial intelligence algorithms, we're starting a (free) market forecast service.
To pursue our business plan, we need to investigate the needs, qualities and quantities of our potential customers, and since you're all traders here, please take a moment to fill this form: http : // docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?formkey=dExKajlTb2R2aFZjZzdmNHRVN2hXWnc6MQ
It's only 10 short questions! Thank you.
Note, this is part of a school assignment we have to do for a Business & Economics class. Since we're computer science students, we decided on a very lucrative (provided it is successful) business of providing *reliable* stock and other markets forecasts (obtained with the help of advanced AI algorithms). Please answer the survey as you would if it were a real, soon-to-become available service. You can make four girls and one guy tremendously thankful!
Note, since it's just a mock business, you needn't provide your email in the last question.
I don't think they would approve, but I'm the guy , and it's no big deal, so here:

(and the last one, who strangely has no noticable online presence)
Nothing too extraordinary on either side of the scale, I can say myself. :P
Also, that's as far as the 'thanks' go, I think. :P
The email field is there so that we can show to whomever evaluates our coursework that we did a proper job at segmenting our potential customers as well as making available means to pre-subscribe should one want to. Though we do have some specific implementation-oriented details, which we hold as business secrets and omit from the business plan document as well, likely there will not be such a service from us, not in the shortest while, at least. Sorry.
But please do fill in the survey, will you? You can even recommend it to your trading colleagues if you wish.
I've been posting the link around for hours and we only got 7 responses up to now.
We're computer science students. We know algorithms and stuff. I've only traded for a few months, and I heavily-margined lost a little over $10k of mom's savings in April 2011 XAG drop.
The question is not whether you would want MY service. The question is whether you want such as defined HYPOTHETICAL service (we're doing homework here). 80% accuracy as stated is meant as hit ratio when the symbols that our model predicts really go up or down.
We are not currently planning to make such service available as we have other studies to finish, however I might, at some later date, write some scripts for myself at least. Then, I would not be vesting faith in my trading, but rather in the sophisticated classification/regression algorithms comprising the equally interesting art of machine learning. Everything is hypothetical here. Sorry.
If you need a real-world market prediction service, try IKnowFirst.co.il (IKnowFirst.com), but I can't really recommend them since IMHO they have quite inaccurate predictions considering they're Jewish.
But please do fill out our form. It should only take you a minute?
