The authors stated that a NN may be a more powerful classification technique if the mappings of layers are carried out in the appropriate manner.

Even simple market research. Bosarge [32] detected a new class networks are capable of misleadingly overfitting an of inefficiencies in the liquid capital markets by asset price series.

They showed that but it is the combination of this capability, together neural-nets can be used for time series forecasting, with a rule-based system, that makes a useful real- at least for a single period forecasting problem.

Many of the authors who have of the performance of neural-nets and conventional used the technology reported that its use, in different methods in forecasting time series.

However, for series with short have outperformed linear statistical approaches, memory, neural-nets outperform the Box-Jenkins econometric models, and other conventional methods model. Neural networks are robust, parsimonious in a large number of applications and financial in their data requirements, and provide good long problem domains.

Unfortunately, not all the experi- term forecasting. The experiments with neural-nets in forecasting Some authors [7,6,] reported the inability of are not all positive. Fishwick [43], reported that the NN technology to deliver in certain experiments. Burgess et al. It is therefore important to recognise even for inherently non-linear problems, a linear that neural network technology has its own draw- model with error-feedback terms can out-perform backs.

Thus, Neural networks can identify important decision- the performance of both linear and non-liner mod- making factors that appear to be irrelevant, or even els can be considerably improved by the use of factors that conflict with traditional theories in the error-feedback terms in financial time series fore- knowledge domain. Since the scope of training is casting. Marquez et al. Furthermore, most neural networks lack accuracy by using functional forms such as the explanatory capability.

Thus, justifications for results linear model, the logarithmic model and the are difficult to obtain because their connection reciprocal model. The authors reported that neural- weights do not usually have obvious interpretations. However, they con- logic behind specific decisions. Therefore, it is not cluded that one cannot build a neural-net and possible to check intermediate computations or to always expect it to perform best.

Koutsougeras C, Papachristou G. These methods have been used for a number Therefore, at each iteration, the performance function is always reduced. The LM algorithm merges the best attributes of the steepest-descent algorithm and the Gauss-Newton technique.

Also, many of their limitations avoided. Theory of scaled conjugate gradient In the backpropagation algorithm, the weights are adjusted in the steepest descent direction negative of the gradient because the performance function decreases rapidly in this direction. But, the rapid reduction of performance function in this direction does not imply the fastest convergence always. The search is done along the conjugate directions in the conjugate gradient algorithms thus, generally producing speedier convergence than the steepest-descent direction.

To find the length of the updated weight step size, most of the algorithms use a learning rate. But, the step size is modified in each iteration in most of the conjugate gradient algorithms. Therefore, to reduce the performance function, the search is done along the conjugate gradient direction to find the step size.

A key advantage of the scaled conjugate gradient is that it does not line search at each iteration as compared to all other conjugate gradient algorithms. In the line search, the network responses of all training inputs are computed some times for every search which is computationally expensive. Thus, to avoid time-consuming line searches the scaled conjugate gradient algorithm SCG was designed by Moller, It does not include any critical user-dependent parameters, and it is much faster than the Levenberg-Marquardt Backpropagation.

We can use this algorithm on any dataset, if net input, weight and transfer functions of the given dataset have a derivative function. Derivatives of performance concerning bias variable X and weight are calculated using backpropagation. So, it avoids line search at every iteration to approximate scale step size by using the LM algorithm Hagan et al. Training phase stops when any of the following conditions appear: If the maximum number of repetitions achieved.

If maximum time is overshot. The performance reduced to the target. If the gradient of the performance is lower than the minimum gradient. If the validation performance has crossed the maximum fail times since the last time it decreased when using validation.

Theory of Bayesian regularization Bayesian regularized artificial neural networks BRANNs eliminate or reduce the requirement for lengthy cross-validation. Hence perform more robustly than standard backpropagation. A key advantage of this algorithm is that it considers the probabilistic nature of the weights in the network related to the given data set.

The probability of overfitting increases dramatically as more hidden layer of neurons added in the neural network. Thus for a stopping point, it requires a validation set. In this algorithm all unreasonable complex models penalized by pushing extra linkage weights to zero. The network will train and calculate the non-trivial weights. As the network grows some parameters will converge to a constant. Also, the volatility and noise in stock markets lead to the probability of overtraining for basic backpropagation networks.

But, Bayesian networks are more parsimonious and tend to reduce the probability of overfitting and eliminate the need for a validation step. Therefore, the available data for training is increased Jonathon, Bayesian regularization has the same usage criteria as the Scale Conjugate Gradient Backpropagation algorithm. This algorithm minimizes the weights and a linear combination of squared errors. For good generalization qualities of the network, this algorithm modifies the linear combinations Guresen et al.

This Bayesian regularization takes place within the Levenberg-Marquardt algorithm. Results Performance plots The performance plots help us to identify the number of iterations epochs at which the mean squared error become least or stops changing. The number of iterations does not represent time as we can see that Scaled Conjugate Gradient gives the best validation in 54 iterations and Levenberg-Marquardt gives in 10 13 iterations on tick dataset min dataset but the time taken by Scaled Conjugate Gradient is less than Levenberg-Marquardt in both datasets.

From Fig. We see that Bayesian Regularization is giving least mean squared error compared to Levenberg-Marquardt, followed by Scaled Conjugate Gradient when overall performance over all datasets. But, when only the performance on test dataset is compared, the Scaled Conjugate Gradient gives the best performance.

The testing dataset is chosen at random from the dataset. Regression plots The network performance is validated through regression plots. Thus, the network output regarding targets for training, validation, testing, and overall datasets are displayed by the regression plots. The Bayesian Regularization uses the whole validation dataset for training as well. We can see that the fit is very good for all tick data sets as the R values in each case of 0. Only Bayesian Regularization gives R-value of almost 0.

But, when only the regression plots on test dataset are compared, the Scaled Conjugate Gradient gives best results. These plots portray that prediction over tick dataset gives better predictions than prediction over the min dataset. We can see that there is not significant change in accuracy for all the algorithms.
