I’m considering experimenting with some long term personal investment strategy by coding it. I have a hard time approaching investments from a manual research standpoint when I approach everything else from a data + formula standpoint, so I’m looking at the Ally Invest API to try to craft something.
Initially (first year or so) I’m not planning on actually executing any trades, just gathering information and letting it simulate actions to see how it performs.
Since there’s such a variety of experience on this board, I’m wondering if anybody else has done something similar and if there were any suggestions. Just for my own personal Elixir enjoyment reasons, I’m thinking of using GenStage to ingest and consume the investment data, compressing it into Postgres using the CStore extension and then alerting me with recommendations with the formula has something it thinks I should act on.
Any feedback or gotchas would be appreciated.
