I'm working on a trading bot and forecasting tool. In order to employ machine learning to optimize it, I need historic data of the Bitcoin markets.
Currently, I'm monitoring myself Mt. Gox for every trade and market depth over time. However, it will take one month (ideally much more) until I gather enough data to experiment and perform forecasting simulations.
Do you know if I can find historic trade data about Mt. Gox? Is someone willing to release it with a bounty?
Also, besides Mt. Gox, there is much more data that can be useful for forecasting. Do you have any other kind of historic Bitcoin market data? Do you have any suggestion about data I should monitor now?
All data I' gather will be publicly available once I set up the GitHub site for my bot and decide the format for the data.
