Abstract

With cloud computing oering organizations a level of scalability and power, we are nally at a point where machine learning is set to support human nancial analysts in FOReign EXchange (FOREX) markets. Trading accuracy of current robots, however, is still hard limited. This paper deals with the derivation of a one-step predictor for a single FOREX pair time-series. In contrast to many other approaches, our predictor is based on a theoretical framework. The historical price actions are modeled as Auto Regressive Integrated Moving Average (ARIMA) random process, using maximum likelihood tting. The Minimum Akaike Information Criterion Estimation (MAICE) yields the order of the process. A Support Vector Machine (SVM), whose feature space is spanned by historical price actions, yields the one-step ahead class label UP or DOWN. Backtesting results on the EURUSD pair on dierent time frames indicates that our predictor is capable of achieving high instantaneous prot but on long-term average, is only protable when the the risk-to-reward ratio per trade is around 1:1.2. The result is inline with related studies
