Entropy and Market Prediction with Technical Indicators

  • Marian Bielik
Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 289)


Technical indicators are often used in automated and non-automated trading strategies. In this pager, we will use one of them with the combination of entropy. We will use entropy to find predictable market part and then we will use technical indicator to predict market movements.
