Developing short-term stockmarket trading systems is a complex process, as there is a great deal of random noise present in the time series data of individual securities. The primary difficulty in training neural networks to identify return expectations is to find variables to help identify the signal present in the data. In this paper, the authors follow the previously published Vanstone and Finnie methodology. They develop a successful neural network, and demonstrate its effectiveness as the core element of a financially viable trading system.
