Example text

1) where a is positive price adjustment coefficient, D C are orders generated by technical agents while D F are orders of fundamental ones. W C and W F are weights of the agents using technical respectively fundamental rules. They are reflecting current ratio between the technical and fundamental agents. α brings the random term to the Eq. 1. It is an IID normal random variable with mean zero and constant standard deviation σ α . As was already said, technical analysis extrapolates price trends—when they go up (price is growing) agents buy the assets.

1. This shows the method listed against each category as interpreted by Dharl and Stein [5]. 1 Data-Driven Data-driven methodologies were based on data mining techniques. They evolved with lists, databases and data warehousing, which developed into a domain of research that is still titled data mining. The inputs are based on a list of related facts (even when held in databases) that need to be associated and queried prior to being interpreted. For example, On-line Analytical Processing (OLAP), Executive Information Systems (EIS) and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are types of data-driven DSS.

10) for the fundamental rules. Agents use most recent performance (at the end of AC formula resp. A F ) and also the orders submitted in period t − 2 are executed at prices started in period t − I . In this way the profits are calculated. Agents have memory, which is represented by the parameter d. Values are 0 ≤ d ≤ 1. If d = 0 then agent has no memory, much higher value is, much higher influence the profits have on the rule fitness. 24 R. 2 Extension of Original Model Original model [27] has (in the authors parameterization) tendency to stabilize itself in a long term—if the fundamental trading rules are overbearing the technical trading method, although the bubbles and the crashes occur, their values are going to be smaller because the price is targeting near the fundamental value and the volatility is going to be less too.
