Fresh Start

After a long break for this project we prepare it now for a fresh start.

This entails a freeze in the current feature development of the 0.2 branch. The code for this version (currently 0.2-4 beta-2) is still available, but will receive only bug fixes.

A new branch 0.3 will be created and development starts from scratch with a changed design and the experience from the previous development in mind.

We would like to express our eternal gratitude to vooch for initiating this project and releasing the code as open source!... read more

aistockbot-0.1.03 released

AIStockBot is getting better than ever!

0.1.03 11/02/02 - Fixed serious error in calculating moving averages.
close_moving_average_X and volume_moving_average_X were giving
incorrect values because close_moving_total_X and
volume_moving_total_X were not zeroed out when the next
combination was run.
- Changed commission from $10 to 1%
- Changed individual.php and individual_2.php so graphs
can be displayed in 21, 42, 63, 126, 252, 500, 1000, 4000 days
- Changed header.php where Individual Stocks form defaults
at 30-day graph
- Optimized update_signal.php by analyzing only the
companies you would like to review
- Optimized learn.php by analyzing only the companies
you would like to review
- Optimized create_combinations.php algorithm to run shorter
formulas first (and see where php's deficiencies happen)
- Fixed create_rule_potential.php by adding unset()
statements.
- Fixed individual.php by adding unset() statements.
- Fixed individual_2.php by adding unset() statements.
- Various cosmetic fixes showing start/end of scripts
- Fixed results.php (gave errors when less than 10 combinations
were tested.

aistockbot-0.1.02 released

There's significant changes in this release. Users are encouraged to download it and help in fixing memory leaks. Basically, we need to use the php unset() function to clear out some memory. Contact vooch@Lawrenceburg.com if you can help out on this.

0.1.02 10/28/02 - MAJOR RELEASE: ABLE TO GRAPH AND GIVE RECOMMENDATIONS
- Added stage_technical_data.php. This script prepares
the download process so you don't keep redownloading
every stock multiple times per day.
- Changed update_technical_data.php to reference where
download=1 instead of active=1 so I can pick off where
I left off in a download process.
- Added STEP: Update Signal (update_signal.php) which creates
buy/sell recommendations based on the best combination in
the results table.
- Added STEP: Recommendation which gives the daily
recommendations.
- Added a fixed $10 commission on every trade. We'll improve
that later.
- Fixed individual.php and individual_2.php so JpGraph
would work with php-4.2.0
- Added update_company_active.php which activates/deactivates
companies based on which form is used on index.php
- Added update_variable.php which changes the active level
of a variable (used on main page index.php)
- Added Field:
On Table: variable
New Field: ID bigint(autoincrement)
- Added table: portfolio
account varchar(10)
ticker varchar(10)
quantity decimal(15,6)
- Added table: transaction... read more
