stock trend prediction

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to develop a model that optimize buy/sell signals at the end of day, in order to obtain the best gain.

Inputs are techical indicators like RSI, MACD, Stochastic and candle patterns.

At the moment I have a training set of Apple's stock in excel (that I will share when I find out the way).

In the past I have tried to build a model considering following label:

  • 1 if the price variation is >0.2
  •  0 if the price variation is between -0.2 and 0.2
  • -1  if the price variation is <0.2

But the result accurancy is around 50% .

How can improve it?

Could you please help me? 


Thanks in advance

    I would optimize your algorithm using the Grid Operator. You can get good success when you do that.
