Betting on Mergers & Acquisitions

Team members:

Have you ever wondered what company insiders might know that makes them such good traders? Even when they're not leveraging "insider information", they seem to always just get the timing right. Well, techAY aims to help you read through the lines, and see past their trading trends, to generate a better than market trading strategy.  Our formula uses Machine Learning to predict and observe trading patterns based on SEC form 4 data, publicly available on the SEC website, to bet on which companies are most likely to have "material, non-public information", and capitalize on upcoming M&A deal announcements, giving you a leg up on the competition.
