Honey Badger Hedge Fund: Hackers predict stock market with open source mojo

Can an algorithm successfully predict great stock moves? That’s the premise behind Honey Badger Hedge Fund,  a super-secret Twitter stock-picker that was put together with a little economics know-how and some exploring with Python. So far, the 7 recommendations the algorithm has made have been profitable, producing a 9.38 percent return rate, not bad for something that was made during 12-week programming bootcamp Hack Reactor. 

Somewhere, out on the web, there’s a secret Twitter account that’s one hell of a stock picker. So far, the thing has recommended seven stock trades — all to a private group of traders — and each one of them has turned a profit.
