Contextuall Launches 5 New Algorithms To Predict The Direction Of Sirius XM Radio (SIRI)

|Includes:Sirius XM Holdings Inc. (SIRI)

Many people believe that we live in a world designed for-and increasingly controlled by-algorithms.

That's where Contextuall comes in.

It is our goal to create a massive inventory of algorithms that can be used to predict a wide range of variables-stock market prices, elections, geopolitical conflicts, movie sales, economic data and more.

We've just launched our website, offering free access to backtested performance analysis on each algorithm. Contextuall also offers free financial research reports and market data.

Today we're pleased to announce the launch of 5 new proprietary algorithms to predict the direction of Sirius XM Radio (NASDAQ:SIRI).

During an earlier report we noticed that Radio Broadcasting stocks were the most shorted industry in our coverage universe. We wanted to take a closer look, and figure out if the excessive pessimism is misplaced.

We decided to focus our attentions on Sirius XM (SIRI), using the stock as a proxy for the overall industry.

We created 5 algorithms that now go into testing (links listed below). Every day we'll monitor the performance of these algorithms, keeping an eye on their stability as market conditions change.

PLEASE NOTE: All these projections are based on data as of close on Friday, July 27. All these models will be judged on their accuracy from that date.

If you'd like to know more about Contextuall's services, or if you have a specific stock you'd like to model with our system, contact us.

We've also included links to recent Contextuall data feeds at the bottom of this page.
