Built a trading bot using this subreddit as data

https://imgur.com/a/Kj01TQG I built a trading bot that used portfolio optimization on 2020 (prior to the GME explosion). I believe the bot performed well, what does this say about wallstreetbets. Does this mean that wall street bets is truly representative of the market? Or is this just a fluke that is a byproduct of my algorithm? I believe that the 2020 data would be representative of the market today, I intentionally didn’t include the January 2021, because it may have been a fluke and isn’t representative of future data. However, that may not be the case, in that case my bot would perform even better in that context. Another problem is with the stocks chosen in my portfolio, since I picked the most popular stocks out of wallstreetbets, it may lead to some bias as wallstreetbets may have only been talking about the stock because it was growing. Does this type of growth make sense for a bot using wallstreetbets for natural language data?
