Forecasting Change Directions for Financial Time Series Using Hidden Markov Model

  title={Forecasting Change Directions for Financial Time Series Using Hidden Markov Model},
  author={Sang Ho Park and Ju-Hong Lee and Jae-Won Song and Tae-Su Park},
Financial time series, i.e. stock prices, has the property of being noisy, volatile and non-stationary. It causes the uncertainty in the forecasting of the financial time series. To overcome this difficulty, we propose a new method that forecasts change direction (up or down) of next day’s closing price of financial time series using the continuous HMM. It classifies sliding windowed stock prices to two categories (up and down)by their next day’s price change directions, and then trains two… CONTINUE READING
