    I am continuously amazed by MSFTs tools.

    I have a model that I have developed that auto trades equities. I am in the process of writing out relevant statistics of performance etc to a database.

    It didn't take long to notice that certain equities are modeled better than others under certain circumstances, and that performance changes in complex ways from day to day, even intraday. What I do know to filter my universe of equities for that day is I use the neural net in my head to pick the equities that the model will be trading that day based on my experience with the model. However, I would like to make the selection completely scientific and automated.

    MSFT SQL Server has new algorithms to support this kind of data mining:


    Nice! Does anyone have any experience with the data mining features of SQL server?

    nitro :cool:
  2. Interesting stuff. I'd like to see how these data analysis tools could be applied towards either a stock selection model or a trading model.
