This means the algorithm creates, deletes, and modifies relationships between different financial assets to optimize its predictive accuracy. Based on the relationships and the latest market data, the algorithm calculates its forecasts. Since the algorithm learns from its previous forecasts and is continuously readjusting the relationships, it adapts quickly to changing market situations.

  2. Is The New iPhone X A Pricing Mistake Or An Intelligent Move?
    A special 10th anniversary iPhone is going to be a must-have for Apple loyalists. My thinking is that the iPhone X is a one-time commemorative model that won’t see more versions. Next year, Apple will release the iPhone 8s and iPhone 8s Plus. However, my bet is there won’t be an iPhone Xs model.
