Hi Rishov.

Thank you so much for your interest in the article.
Which typo do you refer to? I can’t seem to find it :/

I started digging into both Pandas and Matplotlib and the possibilities are endless there. There are also so many methods that would help with my analysis.

I did enjoy the manual labor of this project as I find all aspects of python super fun :D As you say, a beginner python programmer might find this useful and build on top of it. That is also why I would like to share the code.

I don’t really have a next step with this at the moment, but your ideas are intriguing. An algorithm that could predict earnings would actually be a useful tool. There is one flaw with this platform and that is that web scraping is not allowed. This means I am missing out on thousands of articles. Doing this manually was a pain… I did start writing the scraper but stopped when I realized I wouldn’t technically and legally be able to use it.

I am getting more and more into statistics and data science these days and I am considering taking a few subjects at Uni to get more into it.

I will share more work in the future as I think it is a brilliant way to learn!

thanks,
M
