People are definitely going to buy into this.
The recommendations from the app, which to be clear is 100 percent a prank, are pretty funny — they read like the financial version of a run-of-the-mill astrology app describing which signs are romantically compatible. But they also illustrate just how much astrological — and financial — nonsense gets passed off as real advice.
The app recommended that a Scorpio Futurism employee buy into companies that were founded on dates that made them water signs. Pisces corporations, for instance, earned a high "compatibility score," even if their financial prospects earned them a drastically lower "analyst rating" score.
It's fun to play around in the app and learn about what your cosmos-determined "investor profile" is like — again, it's the usual astrological nonsense, but about money instead of personal relationships. But please, please remember that it's all a joke before you spend any money.
