Technical Indicators and LSTM Prediction for Stock Prices

Akar, Aslıhan
In this report, we study, first, Tesla Motors’ stock price prediction in a traditional way using technical indicators like Moving Average, Relative Strength Index, Parabolic SAR, Commodity Channel Index, Stochastic Oscillator, and Awesome Oscillator in the first part. Having analyzed Tesla Motors’ stock price with traditional technical indicators, we use long short term memory model for prediction. In long short term memory model, closing prices of Tesla Motors stock are used for the last two years. The model can predict the trend successfully. The technical indicators can provide context to trends, be used to identify divergences, and even help with the timing of potential entry and exit signals. But using just one of the technical indicators is generally considered a risky decision because one must be aware of announcements and headlines that play a crucial role in determining the stock price.


Stochastic volatility and stochastic interest rate model with jump and its application on General Electric data
Celep, Betül; Hayfavi, Azize; Department of Financial Mathematics (2011)
In this thesis, we present two different approaches for the stochastic volatility and stochastic interest rate model with jump and analyze the performance of four alternative models. In the first approach, suggested by Scott, the closed form solution for prices on European call stock options are developed by deriving characteristic functions with the help of martingale methods. Here, we study the asset price process and give in detail the derivation of the European call option price process. The second appr...
Volatility indexes and an implementation of the Turkish BIST 30 index
Karakurt, Caner; Uğur, Ömür; Department of Financial Mathematics (2018)
In 1993, by representing of CBOE Vix, global financial markets met volatility indexes. In 2003, methodology of the CBOE Vix is updated and it took the form which used today. Day after day, volatility indexes have attracted more and more investors and financial institutions, and soon volatility indexes have succeeded in becoming one of the most followed financial indicators. Following these developments, many countries have introduced their implied volatility indexes by using CBOE Vix methodology or its vari...
Hydro Inflow Forecasting and Virtual Power Plant Pricing in the Turkish Electricity market
Çabuk, Sezer; Kestel, Sevtap Ayşe; Kalaycı, Erkan (2019-05-23)
Hydro inflow forecasting with most accurate quantitative models is a very crucial subject for effective hydro optimization, virtual power plant pricing, volume risk management and weather derivatives pricing in the Turkish electricity market. Predicting increase or decrease in hydro inflow, seasonal characteristics of hydrological years such as wet, dry or normal, allow the decision-makers to economically use water for optimal periods, quantify of volume risk and determine effective portfolio management str...
Application of stochastic volatility models with jumps to BIST options
Rahiminejat, Monireh; Sezer, Ali Devin; Department of Financial Mathematics (2017)
This thesis gives a derivation of call and put option pricing formulas under stochastic volatility models with jumps; the precise model is a combination of Merton and Heston models. The derivation is based on the computation of the characteristic function of the underlying process. We use the derived formulas to fit the model to options written on two stocks in the BIST30 index covering the first two months of 2017. The fit is done by minimizing a weighted $L_2$ distance between the observed prices and the ...
Empirical investigation of the relationship between investors’ average holding periods and price informativeness
Çetin, Müge; Güner, Zehra Nuray; Department of Business Administration (2020)
Short-term trading is alleged to breed informational inefficiency and lead to excess volatility in stock markets. On the other hand, it is observed that investors’ average holding periods are declining steadily all over the world. There is an extensive body of theory on information heterogeneity, the impact of higher order beliefs and short-termism in asset pricing, yet empirical studies testing their implications are scarce. The objective of this thesis is to provide empirical evi...
