[SOLVED] Currency predicting

Hi
I have school project where i ve to predict currency values, And we're told to use NBP (eng: National Bank of Poland) average exchange rates for 2010-2012 and test it with this average exchange rates for 2013 year.

I managed to do this but i dont know why Performance in X-Validation isnt showing me its accuracy. Did i messed something in diagram?
Sry for my weak english, im not native english speaker.

Re: Currency predicting

I guess it provides the Root Mean Squared Error (RMSE)? That's because you are predicting a numerical value, i.e. you are solving a regression problem. The accuracy can only be calculated for classification problems, i.e. when you predict categories or classes instead of numbers.

Instead of k-NN you should try other regression algorithms such as the Linear Regression. You will find plenty of information on linear regression and the RMSE in that context on the internet.

By the way, instead of using the second Set Role operator, try to enable the create_label parameter in the Windowing operator. Select the USD attribute as label attribute, and for the horizon select which day from the future will taken (x days ahead of the current value).

Re: Currency predicting

Its not RMSE, because i had earlier problems with it.
I changed to linear regression as u suggested but it doesnt solved my problem.
Is it possible to close one of the result screens in a way that would prevent it from appearing again?

Re: Currency predicting

Actually, you connected only the upper two output ports of the X-Validation to the process output. Those are the created model and the training data. To see the actual performance, you have to connect the ave-port to the process output. If that does not help, please post a description of your data, i.e. the attributes and their data types.

Re: Currency predicting

Facepalm...
U were right Marius. But now i'm back to RMSE.

Here u have exported process and 3 excel sheets.

Maybe you will help, because i dont have any idea how to deal with that RMSE.
