FINANCIAL FORECASTING USING NEURAL NETWORKS

A. Zorins

Abstract


This paper presents an application of neural networks to financial time-series forecasting. No additional indicators, but only the information contained in the sales time series was used to model and forecast stock exchange index. The forecasting is carried out by two different neural network learning algorithms – error backpropagation and Kohonen self-organising maps. The results are presented and their comparative analysis is performed in this article.

Keywords
