Article
This study investigates the efficiency of the radial basis function neural networks in forecasting the US unemployment and explores the utility of Kalman filter and support vector regression as forecast combination techniques. On one hand, an autoregressive moving average model, a smooth transition autoregressive model and three different neural ne...
Article
In this paper a hybrid genetic algorithm–support vector regression (GA-SVR) model in economic forecasting and macroeconomic variable selection is introduced. The proposed algorithm is applied to the task of forecasting US inflation and unemployment. GA-SVR genetically optimizes the SVR parameters and adapts to the optimal feature subset from a feat...
Article
The motivation of this paper is threefold. Firstly, we apply a Multi-Layer Perceptron (MLP), a Recurrent Neural Network (RNN) and a Psi-Sigma Network (PSN) architecture in a forecasting and trading exercise on the EUR/USD, EUR/GBP and EUR/CHF exchange rates and explore the utility of Kalman Filter, Genetic Programming (GP) and Support Vector Regres...
Article
The motivation of this paper is to investigate the use of a Neural Network (NN) architecture, the Psi Sigma Neural Network (PSN), when applied to the task of forecasting and trading the Euro/Dollar (EUR/USD) exchange rate using the European Central Bank (ECB) fixing series and to explore the utility of Kalman Filters in combining NN forecasts. This...
Preprint
Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO) provides a decentralized governance solution through blockchain, where decision-making process relies on on-chain voting and follows majority rule. This paper focuses on the most influential DAO, namely MakerDAO, and we find voters fall into different 'voting parties' after applying clustering algorithm t...
Article
This paper explores the use of machine learning algorithms and narrative sentiments when applied to the task of forecasting and trading Bitcoin. The forecasting framework starts from the selection among 295 individual prediction models. Three machine learning approaches, namely Neural Networks, Support Vector Machines and Gradient Boosting approach...

Ever since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, lockdowns to curb the spread of the virus have resulted in an increased interest of retail investors in the stock market, due to more free time, capital, and commission-free trading brokerages. This interest culminated in the January 2021 short squeeze wave, caused in no small part due to the coordi...
Article
This paper uses a multidimensional descriptive analysis to familiarize the reader with the extent of penetration of big data, artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning (ML) techniques in the financial technology roadmap. We propose a clear framework for the symbiotic nature of these data science themes towards fintech empowerment. The fram...

Supply Chain Finance (SCF) has gradually taken on digital characteristics with the rapid development of electronic information technology. Business audit information has become more abundant and complex, which has increased the efficiency and increased the potential risk of commercial banks, with credit risk being the biggest risk they face. Theref...
Article
In this study, the profitability of technical analysis and Bayesian Statistics in trading the EUR/USD, GBP/USD, and USD/JPY exchange rates are examined. For this purpose, seven thousand eight hundred forty-six technical rules are generated, and their profitability is assessed through a data snooping procedure. Then, the most promising rules are com...
Article
We investigate the performance of more than 21,000 technical trading rules on 12 categorical and country-specific markets over the 2004-2015 study period. For this purpose, we apply a discrete false discovery rate approach in more than 240,000 hypotheses and examine the profitability, persistence and robustness of technical analysis. In terms of ou...
Article
This study introduces a Conditional Fuzzy inference (CF) approach in forecasting. The proposed approach is able to deduct Fuzzy Rules (FRs) conditional on a set of restrictions. This conditional rule selection discards weak rules and the generated forecasts are based only on the most powerful ones. Through this process, it is capable of achieving h...
Article
Full-text available
This study investigates the predictability of European long-term government bond spreads through the application of heuristic and metaheuristic support vector regression (SVR) hybrid structures. Genetic, krill herd and sine–cosine algorithms are applied to the parameterization process of the SVR and locally weighted SVR (LSVR) methods. The inputs o...
Article
This study is investigating the predictability of the five Fama–French factors and explores their optimal portfolio allocation for factor investing during 2000–2017. Firstly, we forecast each factor with a pool of linear and nonlinear models. Next, the individual forecasts are combined through dynamic model averaging, and their performance is bench...

We investigate the performance of dynamic portfolios constructed using more than 21,000 technical trading rules on 12 categorical and country-specific markets over the 2004-2015 study period, on rolling forward structures of different lengths. We also introduce a discrete false discovery rate (DFRD+/-) method for controlling data snooping bias. Com...
Article
This paper attempts to investigate if adopting accurate forecasts from Neural Network (NN) models can lead to statistical and economically significant benefits in portfolio management decisions. In order to achieve that, three NNs, namely the Multi-Layer Perceptron, Recurrent Neural Network and the Psi Sigma Network (PSN), are applied to the task o...
Article
This study evaluates the efficiency of peripheral European domestic banks and examines the effects of bank-risk determinants on their performance over 2007–2014. Data Envelopment Analysis is utilised on a Malmquist Productivity Index in order to calculate the bank efficiency scores. Next, a Double Bootstrapped Truncated Regression is applied to obt...

For this purpose, seven thousand eight hundred forty-six technical rules are generated and their profitability is assessed through a novel data snooping procedure. Then, the most promising rules ar...
Article
This study introduces a Reverse Adaptive Krill Herd - Locally Weighted Support Vector Regression (RKH-LSVR) model. The Reverse Adaptive Krill Herd (RKH) algorithm is a novel metaheuristic optimization technique inspired by the behaviour of krill herds. In RKH-LSVR, the RKH optimizes the locally weighted Support Vector Regression (LSVR) parameters b...
Article
In this study, a Krill-Herd Support Vector Regression (KH-vSVR) model is introduced. The Krill Herd (KH) algorithm is a novel metaheuristic optimization technique inspired by the behaviour of krill herds. The KH optimizes the SVR parameters by balancing the search between local and global optima. The proposed model is applied to the task of forecas...
Article
In this paper, two different Locally Weighted Support Vector Regression (wSVR) algorithms are generated and applied to the task of forecasting and trading five European Exchange Traded Funds. The trading application covers the recent European Monetary Union debt crisis. The performance of the proposed models is benchmarked against traditional Suppo...
Article
The main motivation for this paper is to introduce a novel hybrid method for the prediction of the directional movement of financial assets with an application to the ASE20 Greek stock index. Specifically, we use an alternative computational methodology named evolutionary support vector machine (ESVM) stock predictor for modeling and trading the AS...
