Day Trading the Emerging Markets Using Multi-Time Frame Technical Indicators and Artificial Neural Networks

Part of the Studies in Computational Intelligence book series (SCI, volume 486)


This chapter addresses the topic of automated day trading systems based on artificial neural networks and multi-timeframe technical indicators, a very common market analysis technique. After we introduce the context of this study and give a short overview of day trading, we set out our approach and methodological framework. Then, we present the results obtained through these procedures on several of the most liquid stocks in the Romanian stock market. The final section of the chapter concludes the study and brings some insight about possible future work in the area.
