Trading Stock Neural networks
Today, we are seeing the increasing use of neural networks in financial markets to help forecast prices with greater accuracy and the complexity and research is mind boggling. This article will look at the use of neural networks in financial trading and their profit potential.
The Human Brain V Computers
The human brain is one of the most complex objects if not the most complex object known to man. It is not just its superior processing speed and storage space that make it extraordinary, but more importantly, its ability to learn and adapt.
Neural Networks Defined
Computer scientists have tried to write software that allows computers to mimic the learning power of the brain (computers already have superior storage and processing speed) and neural networks aim to help a computer learn and adapt.
A neural network is essentially a system of programs and data structures that approximates the operation of the human brain. A neural network consists of a large number of processors operating in parallel, each with its own sphere of knowledge and access to its own databank.
A neural network is "trained" by being given large amounts of data and a set of rules.
A computer program can then tell the network how to react in response to an external event and initiate reactions based on the knowledge it has access to.

For years, there have been whispers on Wall Street of secret government-backed actions like stepping in to buy equity index futures to prevent investors from catastrophic plunges.
The conspiracy goes like this: There is a group of federal government officials the Treasury secretary, the Fed chairman plus senior NYSE officials who make up, the Plunge Protection Team.
It is said they intervene to put a floor under stocks whenever they are at risk of penetrating important levels of technical support, such as when the 50-day moving average slips under the 200-day moving average.
Technicians call this the Death Cross, because, when that happens, it can trigger a larger, steeper rout caused by...

Hedge fund Avenue Capital Group is in talks to hire U.S. proprietary traders from Goldman Sachs Group Inc, Bloomberg reported on Monday, citing two people briefed on the discussions.
Marc Lasry's hedge fund is courting the Goldman Sachs team led by Bob Howard as a way to expand Avenue beyond its focus on distressed and credit investing, Bloomberg said.
The reported talks are the latest efforts by traders to shop themselves around in the wake of a U.S. financial reform law that will essentially ban proprietary trading at U.S. banks.
