Investment Opportunities Forecasting: Extending the Grammar of a GP-based Tool

Kampouridis, Michael, Tsang, Edward (2012) Investment Opportunities Forecasting: Extending the Grammar of a GP-based Tool. International Journal of Computational Intelligence Systems, 5 (3). pp. 530-541. ISSN 1875-6891. E-ISSN 1875-6883. (doi:10.1080/18756891.2012.696918) (KAR id:41394)


In this paper we present a new version of a GP financial forecasting tool, called EDDIE 8. The novelty of this version is that it allows the GP to search in the space of indicators, instead of using pre-specified ones. We compare EDDIE 8 with its predecessor, EDDIE 7, and find that new and improved solutions can be found. Analysis also shows that, on average, EDDIE 8's best tree performs better than the one of EDDIE 7. The above allows us to characterize EDDIE 8 as a valuable forecasting tool.
