Stock Market Prediction: The Tiered Strategy with the Signal Outlier Filter on Wednesday

The following trading strategy was developed using I Know First’s AI Algorithm daily forecasts from January 1st, 2020, to March 24th, 2023, with a focus on S&P 500 stocks selected based on the signal filter. The result of this strategy serves as an example of the trading solutions that I Know First could offer to institutional clients.

The strategy involves constructing a tiered portfolio with monthly rebalancing by implementing the signal outlier filter on Wednesday. In this context, “tiered” means that stock weights are assigned based on forecasts of signals. The signal outlier filter ensures that stocks with signals outside of the chosen range, i.e., those with extreme values, are not considered. So, we construct 4 portfolios, first Wednesday we take the top 20 stocks by predictability, and from those 20 stocks we take the signals that are between 0 – 2.2 and make it signal weighted. Second Wednesday we do the same but we only enter assets that are not in the first portfolio, then we do the same for the third and fourth Wednesdays. On the fifth Wednesday (4 weeks from the first one) we rebalance everything and start over.

The strategy provides a positive return of 92.08% which exceeded the S&P 500 return by 71.97%. Below we can notice the strategy behavior for each year.

I Know First Algorithm – Seeking the Key &  Generating Stock Market Forecast

Stock market predictions: Basic Principle of the "I Know First" Predictive Algorithm

The I Know First predictive algorithm is a successful attempt to discover the rules of the market that enable us to make accurate stock market forecasts. Taking advantage of artificial intelligence and machine learning and using insights of chaos theory and self-similarity (the fractals), the algorithmic system is able to predict the behavior of over 13,500 markets. The key principle of the algorithm lies in the fact that a stock’s price is a function of many factors interacting non-linearly. Therefore, it is advantageous to use elements of artificial neural networks and genetic algorithms. How does it work? At first, an analysis of inputs is performed, ranking them according to their significance in predicting the target stock price. Then multiple models are created and tested utilizing 15 years of historical data. Only the best-performing models are kept while the rest are rejected. Models are refined every day, as new data becomes available. As the algorithm is purely empirical and self-learning, there is no human bias in the models and the market forecast system adapts to the new reality every day while still following general historical rules.


I Know First offers investment solutions for institutional investors, leveraging our advanced self-learning algorithm to gain a competitive advantage. We provide a personalized approach for our institutional clients, enhancing their investment process according to their specific needs and preferences.
