Last week witnessed a strong performance from biotech firm Amgen (AMGN), with an artificial intelligence (AI)-based trading robot facilitating a 4.47% gain. This feat underlines the growing potential of AI in stock market trading. Specifically, the AI trading robot was able to leverage technical analysis, using the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) indicator, to exploit the inherent market opportunities.
For the uninitiated, the MACD is a trend-following momentum indicator that displays the relationship between two moving averages of a security's price. It involves subtracting the 26-period Exponential Moving Average (EMA) from the 12-period EMA. A nine-day EMA of the MACD, known as the "signal line," is then drawn on top of the MACD, which can function as a trigger for buy and sell signals.
In AMGN's case, the MACD turned positive on July 11, 2023, signaling a potential upward trend. This signal is considered bullish, indicating that it may be an optimal time to purchase shares. Historical analysis supports this: when AMGN's MACD turned positive in the past, the stock continued to rise in 27 out of 41 cases over the subsequent month, suggesting an upward trend continuation probability of 66%.
The AI trading robot capitalized on this signal, generating a profitable return of 4.47% over the course of the week. This was not a random outcome; rather, it demonstrates the efficacy of AI in discerning and acting upon complex market signals in real-time.
AI's success in this context lies in its ability to process vast amounts of data quickly and accurately, something that would take a human trader significantly more time. In addition to speed, AI can consistently apply trading rules without allowing emotions to interfere, a common pitfall for human traders.
In AMGN's case, the AI trading robot's strategy relied on the MACD's positive turn, an indicator that was substantiated by historical trends. It's a reminder that, while technical analysis cannot predict future price movements with 100% accuracy, it can provide valuable statistical insights into potential market behavior.
The AI trading robot's impressive 4.47% profit generation last week for AMGN illustrates the promising potential of AI in stock market trading. It serves as a testament to the potential synergy of technology and financial market, delivering significant returns based on reliable technical analysis tools like MACD. As the field of AI continues to evolve, we can expect an even greater precision and consistency in trading strategy execution, marking a new era of algorithmic trading.
