The Superstitious Fund Project – Trading algorithm that operates Superstitiously – DI RCA 2012

The Superstitious Fund Project is a trading algorithm that operates Superstitiously designed by Shing Tat Chung, a student of Design Interactions at the RCA. It is is a live experiment in which an algorithm trades based on superstitious beliefs. Shing designed the autonomous algorithm to make decisions based on lunar cycles and numerology. It is also programmed to develop its own form of superstitious logic, creating lucky and unlucky values that influence its behaviour. 144 people from around the world have already invested a total of £4828.88 in the fund, which will return the resulting balance back to its investors in a year's time.
