Stock Predictions Experiment is Finished

… at least for now.

[edit 3/20/14: I’ve still been doing stock predictions, and my success rate has improved significantly, currently 11 out of 16 correct, accuracy rate of 69%.  More on this in a future post. ]

The enthusiasm of my initial success (being able to predict the shape of a stock chart) was dampened by the seventh prediction. With a success rate of just four out of seven, there is not yet any statistical significance. This is not to say that there is no real effect, but rather I don’t have enough of an understanding of it to be able to use it reliably for predicting stocks. Making public predictions feels incredibly vulnerable. When I’m wrong it’s hard not to feel foolish.

Anecdotally, I wanted to mention a couple of noteworthy oddities: one predicted chart seemed to mirror the actual chart. In a related experiment I receive the opposite answer of the question I posed. To be clear, if I predict UP and the stock is DOWN, I wouldn’t label that as an opposite, just a failure. An example of an opposite would be if I ask “what turns you on?” and I perceive a list of what turns you off.

Mirror images and opposites may indicate that the nonlocal mind has difficulty in orientation and polarity, which obviously would be troublesome for someone who’s goal is to tell in which direction a chart is headed.

I also suspect that nonlocal mind becomes bored with repetition, and without repeated reminders from analytical mind, it loses attention. In dreams, analytical mind is ‘asleep’, so nonlocal mind does whatever it wants. This makes this technique a poor choice for something that requires daily repetition.

Finally, after having done some more private trials, I still do not see a rebounding towards success like I experienced early on. I found that it was difficult to distinguish between dreams that may have actually been an answer to my question versus a run-of-the-mill dream. I was inclined to attribute any dream that showed movement up or down as a stock prediction, though in retrospect that attribution seems unwarranted.

For someone interested in pursuing stock predictions, I do not recommend my dream technique, but would instead recommend Associative Remote Viewing, as taught by Russell Targ.

So my hit rate in now 4 out of 7, bummer. My initial run of success seems to have vanished as the experiment continues. While skeptics would rush to conclude there is no effect, convenient conclusions are also lazy ones. I suspect that the subconscious mind has grown bored with the task of predicting stocks. I need to find a way to keep it interested.

Prediction: Down

Confidence: High

After an initial small fluctuation of down up down, it will dip down into a trough that flattens out. Towards the end of the day a rally will not be enough to restore the price from the start of the day. The lowest price will be in the middle of the day.

So my hit rate in now 4 out of 6

Stock Prediction, AAPL, May 28, 2013

Prediction: Flat to down (no chart).

Confidence: Medium

On Friday I noticed Yahoo Finance provided 2 different stock charts for the same URL for the same day, possibly by browser. The Y axis of the chart served to my Google Chrome showed a higher range of numbers, which compressed the vertical change, yielding a chart that appeared flat:

130524-aapl1a

The chart served to my Safari browser had a Y axis with a smaller range, yielding a more exaggerated chart:

130524-aapl1

This highlights a problem with trying to predict how a chart will appear visually, since I may see two wildly different charts to represent the same data. Today I will only view the chart served to Safari. I predict will a chart that will be very similar, containing ups and downs, but ultimately ending near the same place it started, not up, perhaps down slightly.

The past 2 weeks I have had walking pneumonia.  Between that and the cold medicine I’ve been taking, I wonder if these matters negatively impact my results. If I get a negative result today, I may postpone further predictions until I’m feeling better.

[edit 5:45 pm]

AAPL closed down .83%

130528-aapl

When filtering out low confidence predictions, I am 4 out of 5.
