Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 5097)


An application of neuro-fuzzy systems to supporting trading decisions is presented. The system has the ability to use expert knowledge and to be fitted to the learning data by various machine learning techniques. The proposed approach uses the backpropagation algorithm to determine system parameters on the basis of several indices. Experiments were made on past data showing relatively good performance of the proposed approach.
