Greed and fear: ASX wraps worst year since 2012

WHO's Chilling 'Worst to Come' Warning Will Sting This Stock Market

  • However, the resurgence of new virus cases could trigger an increase in hospitalizations in the short-term.

How (NOT) To Predict Stock Prices With LSTMs

  • Not so recently, a brilliant and ‘original’ idea suddenly struck me — what if I could predict stock prices using Machine Learning.
  • The following piece of code downloads stock price data for Reliance over 15 years with a resolution of 1 day and stores it in a pandas dataframe.
  • Let’s fix our problem statement now — the LSTM model shall see the close prices for the last 10 days (called the time_step) and predict the close price for the next day.
  • But in a practical scenario, the test data will be in real-time, so you won’t know the minimum or maximum or average values beforehand!
  • Finally, let’s structure the data so that our LSTM model can easily read them.
  • The simple sequential model has an LSTM layer followed by a dropout (to reduce over-fitting) and a final dense layer (our output prediction).

The Dow Is Taking Flight as Boeing Makes a Long-Awaited Comeback

  • Boeing stock led the index higher, but there were plenty of factors driving appetite for equities.
  • A seemingly buoyant housing market, China’s vaccine progress, and an apparent stabilization in virus-related fatalities all contributed to the stock market upswing.
  • It was undoubtedly good news for the Dow to see that the U.S. housing market remains strong.
  • Although indirectly related to stocks, this level of demand is a good indicator of robust household consumption.
  • Additional good news on the virus front was China’s incredible vaccine headline.
  • We continue to suggest taking advantage of what should be the last post [pandemic] relief rally.
  • On a good day for the Dow 30, it was the ever-volatile Boeing stock supercharging the index.
  • Apple continues to be the bedrock of the Dow Jones, and its 1.9% rally anchored an already impressive day for the U.S. stock market.

Global stocks are mixed as investors weigh COVID-19 deaths topping 500,000, and markets are hit with a 'nervous calm'

  • Global stocks were mixed on Monday as investors weighed the impact of global coronavirus deaths crossing the half-million mark over the weekend.
  • Case counts around the world have surpassed 10 million, with around 1 million new cases per week, according to the World Health Organization.
  • Those figures are likely much higher in reality due to reporting discrepancies from nation to nation, according to Connor Campbell, a financial analyst at SpreadEx. Investor sentiment in the US was likely swayed by a reversal of recently announced reopening plans in the worst-hit states of Florida and Texas.
  • The US accounts for around a quarter of both totals, Campbell noted, with the country regularly hitting record one-day case increases en route to 2.5 million known infections and over 125,000 deaths.
  • Internationally, virus infections continue to rise in tense environments.

Dow Futures Climb as Stock Market Bears Wave the White Flag

  • It’s been called the ‘most hated stock market rally in history’ but even the bears are finally admitting that stocks want to go higher.
  • According to a new Bloomberg report, stock market bears have thrown in the towel.
  • Investors are perhaps beginning to realise that 5% drops in the market, like we saw last week, may in fact be buying points.
  • We like to think of any setbacks that is perhaps 5-10% in global equities as a buying opportunities for many investors who have not plunged into equities before now.
  • Ever since the March collapse, we’ve heard a chorus of bears calling for a second selloff and even new lows.
  • As you can see in the Bloomberg chart above, hedge funds have been net short since the end of March, even as the market pushed higher.
