Can neural networks predict stock market? (BARC Stock Forecast)


Abstract

We evaluate Barclays prediction models with Modular Neural Network (Market Direction Analysis) and Independent T-Test1,2,3,4 and conclude that the BARC stock is predictable in the short/long term. According to price forecasts for (n+8 weeks) period: The dominant strategy among neural network is to Hold BARC stock.


Keywords: BARC, Barclays, stock forecast, machine learning based prediction, risk rating, buy-sell behaviour, stock analysis, target price analysis, options and futures.

Key Points

  1. Can machine learning predict?
  2. How accurate is machine learning in stock market?
  3. Nash Equilibria

BARC Target Price Prediction Modeling Methodology

We consider Barclays Stock Decision Process with Independent T-Test where A is the set of discrete actions of BARC stock holders, F is the set of discrete states, P : S × F × S → R is the transition probability distribution, R : S × F → R is the reaction function, and γ ∈ [0, 1] is a move factor for expectation.1,2,3,4


F(Independent T-Test)5,6,7= p a 1 p a 2 p 1 n p j 1 p j 2 p j n p k 1 p k 2 p k n p n 1 p n 2 p n n X R(Modular Neural Network (Market Direction Analysis)) X S(n):→ (n+8 weeks) R = 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1

n:Time series to forecast

p:Price signals of BARC stock

j:Nash equilibria

k:Dominated move

a:Best response for target price
