Fads come and go in trading, but certain stick-to-it personalities persist. Knowledge engineer J.D. Smith is still driving AIQ Incorporated and its similarly named products on to bigger and better things. The latest of these is AIQ TradingExpert, the follow-up to AIQ StockExpert, AIQ IndexExpert, AIQ OptionExpert and AIQ MarketExpert.

All these hold the view that enough rules, consistently applied, significantly increase the chances of a good call. The opposing statistical view is that too many rules overly fit the decisions to past data, thereby actually reducing reliability. For AIQ Inc., though, the classic artificial intelligence argument marches on; AIQ TradingExpert is a new and improved version of StockExpert and MarketExpert. It attempts to blend 160 rules for predicting broad market behavior with those forecasting the behavior of individual stocks.

Within the elaborate network of rules, TradingExpert tries to come up with situations where it's highly likely there will be a change in the direction of price. TradingExpert is said to evaluate whether the market is trending up or down, cresting or not, and then examines all the price, volume and breadth information available to come up with the likelihood of change. Some of this is available for your review as examples; in addition, hitting a "?" will generate an English explanation of what triggered the signal. This will usually be the news that an exponentially smoothed average has headed north or south. The complexities of 160 nodes are not revealed. It's all summarized in two little numbers on the lower right of your screen (Figure 1).
