Engaging finance in its most recent and complex developments, RYBN.ORG has undertaken the construction of its own trading bot, designed to invest and speculate on the financial markets. Using an online broker service to directly access the markets, this autonomous program can trigger orders as well as buy and sell stocks. Its decisions are taken with the help of an internal algorithmic intelligence system, and can be influenced by a wide range of external, arbitrary parameters. The whole decision system allows the program to foresee the next moves in the markets, while it tries to identify and anticipate the relevant and effective patterns within the financial chaotic oscillations. The robot’s activity along with its computations and performances is monitored, recorded, and visualized within a dynamic cartography. A panopticon of information unfolds that is formally similar to the control rooms of the stock exchanges’ back offices.


The whole program is designed and distributed in opensource format, in contrast with the blackbox of the algorithmic and high frequency trading.
