I was thinking..... always a dangerous sign...

 

If a sample of say 1000-5000? not sure of the sample size but moving on, geekzone users were polled on any day and asked to pick out of say 10 tec stocks which they "felt" would have a positive reaction in the market place on that day. I would be intrested to see the success rate, of the choice. There choice of stock I imagine would be based on news, articles, release dates etc NOT analysis of the market.

 

Just sayin.....

Are you going to use this info for any particular purpose - eg to make investment decisions and buy stock - or just as a matter of curiosity?

 

Your time frame of "have a positive reaction in the market place on that day" seems a very short one.

The choice would have to be well thought out. I am not sure if Stock Markets are going to be a good investment over the next few years if you are looking for medium term gains. The markets are going to be volatile there maybe opportunities for quick gains if one can act very fast, chose stocks which are down but may briefly rise.

 

There are many variables at play, the US /NK issues, Brexit and other rumblings in the EU. NZ stocks are going to be quite volatile as I believe that we are heading into a turbulent political scene for a few years. This of course is just my thoughts and I am probably wrong.

I agree with pretty much everything you say. Due to my ability, knowledge and interaction with the markets and a limited investment amount, I actually limit myself to about 10 shares that I follow and go in and out of. The way i choose which one! . I use the "mob mentality" news articles events and general politcs of the moment. Non of it is based on any academic based market knowledge. Which lead me to think about the geekzone people, would the "mob mentality be honed by a group of people with a greater understanding of tech, to choose tec stocks.

 

This if you are interested is quite ainterseting article as to what happens with releases of apple.
