Heterogeneous Agents Past and Forward Time Horizons in Setting Up a Computational Model
Price forecasting and trading strategies modelling are examined with major international stock indexes under different time horizons. Results demonstrate that an accurate prediction is equally important as a stable saving rate for long-term survivability. The best economic performances are achieved for a one-year investment horizon with longer training not necessarily leading to improved accuracy. Thin markets" dominance by a particular traders" type (e.g. short memory agents) results in a higher likelihood to learn with computational intelligence tools profitable strategies, used by dominant traders. An improvement in profitability is achieved for models optimized with genetic algorithm and fine-tuning of training/validation/testing distribution
