Has Skynet become self-aware? It seems the ‘robots’ that run the US equity markets (HFT/algo trading dominates what little volume there is left) have decided to cut out the middle man in the market as Associated Press reports this morning that it will employ the story-writing software by start-up Automated Insights to automate the production of U.S. corporate earnings stories. To be frank, given the copy/paste nature of most mainstream media ‘analysis’ of earnings, we thought this had already occurred but AP notes, “We are going to use our brains and time in more enterprising ways during earnings season.” Does that mean that anyone but Zero Hedge will be discussing cashflows or GAAP earnings? It seems the circle is complete, machines write the stories that machines trade on; why not just do everything in binary – it’s not like humans have a chance to react anyway before the robots.
