Neural networks and the financial markets

£75.00

Product description

This is a book about the methods developed byour research team,over a period of 10years, for predicting financial market returns. The work began in late 1991,at a time when one ofus (Jimmy Shadbolt) had just completed a rewrite of the software used at Econostat by the economics team for medium-term trend prediction of economic indica tors.Looking for a new project,it was suggested that we look at non-linear modelling of financial markets, and that a good place to start might be with neural networks. One small caveat should be added before we start: we use the terms "prediction" and "prediction model" throughout the book, although, with only such a small amount of information being extracted about future performance, can we really claim to be building predictors at all? Some might saythat the future of markets, especially one month ahead, is too dim to perceive.

Condition: Fine with only very minor signs of wear.
