What is Gstock?
GStock was a distributed computing project launched in 2006 for stock market analysis. Users volunteered to download and run a software client and donate some free capacity from their computer processing unit. The accumulated computing power was used to search for an investment strategy that historically worked best for each individual stock.

What you need to know about Gstock.
GStock scanned more than one billion investment strategies on over 4,000 US publicly traded stocks. GStock applied technical analysis models in its calculations, and the investment strategies that were discovered to work best for each stock produced BUY and SELL trading signals. The signals were publicly available on the GStock.com website, together with historical statistics and charts with the BUY and SELL signals plotted on them for comparison by users. Gstock is no longer running.
