This page contains a 1D CA representation
of the stock market. The randomness found in the stock
market can be duplicated from a 1D CA. As one can see,
the similarity of the stock market prices (randomly
increasing and decreasing) and the panel on the right
shows the correlation between the two. It's important
to note that you can not predict the stock market with
CAs. As a matter of fact, one of the basic prinicples
of CAs is that you cannot predict it and that you have
to let it run indefinitely (or as long as you need/want).
It's just interesting that one can recreate the same
randomness found in the stock market with CAs.
The panel on the left is a regular
1D CA. The panel on the right is created by subtracting
the total number of black cells (sellers) with the total
number of white cells (buyers).
