A Comprehensive Price Prediction System Based on Inverse Multiquadrics Radial Basis Function for Portfolio Selection
Abstract: Price prediction plays a crucial role in portfolio selection (PS). However, most price prediction strategies only make a single prediction and do not have efficient mechanisms to make a comprehensive price prediction. Here, we propose a comprehensive price prediction (CPP) system based on inverse multiquadrics (IMQ) radial basis function. First, the novel radial basis function (RBF) system based on IMQ function rather than traditional Gaussian (GA) function is proposed and centers on multiple price prediction strategies, aiming at improving the efficiency and robustness of price prediction. Under the novel RBF system, we then create a portfolio update strategy based on kernel and trace operator. To assess the system performance, extensive experiments are performed based on 4 data sets from different real-world financial markets. Interestingly, the experimental results reveal that the novel RBF system effectively realizes the integration of different strategies and CPP system outperforms other systems in investing performance and risk control, even considering a certain degree of transaction costs. Besides, CPP can calculate quickly, making it applicable for large-scale and time-limited financial market.
