I'm not sure if this is a question for "Quantitative Finance" or "Personal Finance & Money" so forgive me if this one is irrelevant for this site.
So I wrote a program (in vb.net for the curious) that predicts stocks sentiments and movements. (the method does not matter) The program eventually procude a serious of numbers or scores, that represents the prediction of the stocks. Each stock has it's own number.
The Main Problem
What can I do with these numbers?...I mean, lets say stock
X got a score of
-421.5234 and stock
Y got a score of
532.521. Sure, the user can understand that stock
X, according to the prediction, will go down, and stock
Y will go up. But this presentation of results is obviously not realistic and does not say much.
I know it is a pretty broad question and not very detailed, but since I have no clue what to do, I hoped that perhaps you can help me. I'm pretty sure that the prediction should rely on the previous value of each company according to the stock market, but still, i can't find a method that will relate the scores generated, to the real prediction.
Any way, any method will be welcome. Thanks :)
