This study analyses the prediction performance of the Asian Currency Unit (ACU) by employing variant methods including the Back-Propagation Neural Networks (BPN), Recurrent Neural Network (RNN), Time-Delay Recurrent Neural Network (TDRNN), General Autoregressive Conditional Heteroscedasticity (GARCH), and random walk models. The results show that Artificial(More)
