1 Usng Assocaton Rule Mnng: Stock Market Events Predcton from Fnancal News Shubhang S. Umbarkar 1, Prof. S. S. Nandgaonkar 2 1 Savtrba Phule Pune Unversty, Vdya Pratshtan s College of Engneerng, Vdya Nagar, Baramat, Pune, , Inda 2 Savtrba Phule Pune Unversty, Vdya Pratshtan s College of Engneerng, Vdya Nagar, Baramat, Pune, , Inda Abstract: Ablty to predct drecton of stock prce accurately s very crucal for market dealers or nvestors to maxmze ther profts. Decson-makng such as whether to buy, sell or hold of shares for nvestor n stock market s also another dffcult task. Data mnng technques have been successfully shown to generate hgh forecastng accuracy of stock prce movement and correspondng sgnals. Predcton of stock prce s the actvty of determnng future state of the stock prce by usng varous technques. In presented work Data Mnng Technque such as Assocaton Rule Mnng s used for predcton of stock market. Predcton s depends on techncal tradng ndcators and closng prces of the stock. Rules are defned accordng to sgnal generated by each techncal tradng ndcator and mapped across the current date query to generate the sgnals lke buy, sell or holds the shares. Keywords: Stock market predcton, Decson makng, Assocaton rule Mnng, Data mnng technque, Naïve Bayes. 1. Introducton Stock market predcton s burnng topc n the feld of fnance. Due to ts busness ncrement, t has attracted often ad from educator to economcs sector. It s mpossble to gve the predcton of prces of stock market because of stock prces are changed by every second. Market stock predcton has ever been a subect of curosty for most nvestors and busness analyst. In today's nformaton-drven doman, more ndvduals try to keep record up-to-date wth the current developments by readng nformatve news tems on the web [1]. Many factors are responsble for the fluctuatons of the market movement. The man factors are fnancal condton, poltcal crcumstances, trader s opportunty and other unforeseen events. Therefore, predctons of stock market prce and ts tracks are dffcult. Investor always tres to fnd an effectve way to fnd the good stock and rght tmng to buy or sell of the stock. For the all companes the stock market s extremely mportant area. By the behavor of the nvestor the stock prce s determne and by usng approprate nformaton nvestor determnes stock prces to predct how the market wll act or react. mportant nformaton n data repostores wth great possbltes. Data mnng technques such as assocaton rule mnng s used for makng automated decsons such as buy, hold, or sell an shares. Neural network [3] s another sgnfcant method for stock predctons because of ts ablty to deal wth fuzzy, unsure and nadequate data, whch may fluctuate rapdly n very short perod. Numerous studes showed that there s a drect relaton between the stock markets and fnancal news [4] because fnancal market s motvated by nformaton and an mportant source of nformaton s news, whch comes from dfferent communcatng meda by vertes of channels. News nclude general news artcles, company releases, news of global economy that can affect the performance of stock market and used them to predct the future stock prces and drecton of the stocks. As the number of nformaton sources s ncreasng day by day, whch may results n hgh volumes of news therefore; there s a need to extract the mportant nformaton from news artcle for predcton. News artcles are manly unstructured and found n World Wde Web that needs to convert them nto structured form to analyze patterns n these artcles. In order to predct the nature of the stock market computng technques need to be combned. Dstnct methods of fnancal analyss have been mproved, and tradtonal fnancal methods are vared, as the tme elapsed. To predct future state of the market there are two methods can be used. Frst method s fundamental analyss that ncludes statstcal data of a company whch s most mportant part of the theoretcal nvestgaton and ncludes reports, fnancal status of the company, the balance sheets etc. It also ncludes reasonng of marketplace aggregaton, capableness and assets of vstor, the contenton, mport/export loudness, producton ndexes, prce statstcs, and the daly nformaton or rumors about company. The second method s techncal analyss [2]; t ncludes dfferent technques for predcton of the stock market. Data mnng technques are used for extractng nformaton from large databases, whch s a wde technology that help to focus on the most In decson-makng, process selectng, preprocessng all the relevant nformaton s a challengng task [5]. Natural Language Processng and Data Mnng methods such as text classfcaton can be used for extractng the news nformaton for cratng feature vectors. Extracton was unknown, mplct and potentally useful nformaton from data n databases prevously, whch s an effectve way of data mnng. It s generally known as knowledge dscovery n database (KDD). In our approach, assocaton rule mnng s used for predcton of stock market. By usng the hstorcal data of the closng prces of stocks, the future state of the shares s determned and approprate sgnal s generated.e. whether to sell, buy or holds the shares. The paper s structured as follows. Frst, the related work on stock market predcton and news extracton s presented n secton II. Then the mplementaton detals are descrbed n Paper ID: SUB

2 secton III. Data Set and Results are descrbed n Secton IV. Concluson s descrbes Secton V. Future Scope descrbed n Secton VI. 2. Related Work Ths secton provdes a bref background survey of ths area. Over the past two decades, many measurable changes have assumed n the surroundngs of busness markets. The utlzaton of strong communcaton and tradng facltes has enlarged the scope of opton for nvestors. Predcton of stock market event s an mportant and senstve motve that has attracted researchers. Fnancal market s mostly motvated by news nformaton, whch s announced n newspaper and n dfferent communcaton meda. Day by day nformaton regardng fnance s ncreasng wdely. Fnancal market nformaton s tme senstve. Uncertanty s the man characterstc of all stock markets, whch s related to ther future state. Ths feature s undesrable and unavodable for the nvestor whenever the stock market s selected for the nvestment. To reducng ths uncertanty s specally challengng task. Stock market predcton s one of the best opton to reduce uncertanty. Stock market predcton ncludes uncoverng market trends, plannng nvestment,nvestment strateges, determnng the perfect tme to purchase the stocks and what stocks to purchase. The lexco-semantc patterns and lexco-syntactc patterns methods for extracton of fnancal event from RSS news feeds[6]. Lexco-semantc patterns used for fnancal ontology that leveragng the commonly used lexco-syntactc patterns to a hgher abstracton level by enablng lexcosemantc patterns to dentfy more and more relevant events than lexco-syntactc patterns from text. The semantc web used to classfy the news tem. Semantc actons allow to updatng the doman knowledge. Semantc Web Rule Language (SWRL) s responsble for mplementaton of the acton rule. Trples paradgms are used for defnng lexcosemantc nformaton extracton patterns that resemble smple sentences n natural language. Event rule engne used to allow rules creaton, fnancal event extracton from RSS news feed headlnes, and ontology updates. The rule engne does the followng actons. Mnng text tems for patterns, Creatng an event f a pattern s found, Determnng the valdty of an event by the user, Executng approprate update actons f an event s vald. The engne conssts of multple components. The frst component s rule edtor, usng the edtor user can construct the rule. Second component s event detector, whch s used for mnng text tems for the lexco-semantc patterns occurrence for the event rules. The thrd component valdaton envronment usng ths component user can determne the valdaton of the event and can modfy the event f event detector made an error. In addton, the last component s acton executon engne whch s used to perform the updatng the rule, fndng the event whch are assocated wth that rule, f and only f the event s vald. The effectveness of the above work s tested wth the help of precson, recall, and F1 measures. The comparson of lexco-semantc patterns and lexco syntactc patterns s studed n [7]. In ths work, ontology s used for retrevng relevant news tems n a semantcally enhanced way. They have used Hermes Informaton Extracton Language (HIEL), whch apply the semantc concepts from ontology and used to evaluate n the context of extractng events and relatons from news. Hermes Informaton Extracton Engne also has mplemented that comples the rules n the rule compler and matches the rules to the text usng the rule matcher after preprocessng the news corpus. They also showed that the lexco-semantc patterns are superor to lexco-syntactc patterns wth respect to effcency and effectveness. Pattern-based nformaton extracton technques are manly focused. A number of prototypes for predctng the short-term market reacton to news based on text mnng technques are descrbed n[8] and some of them are explaned below: 2.1 Prototype developed by Wthrch et al. Ths prototype attempts to predct the 1-day trend of fve maor equty ndces such as the Dow Jones, the Nkke, and the Strats Tmes. Accordng to a 3-category model, the nformaton of ths prototype were labeled. The frst and second category contans news artcles followed by 1-day perods and s assocated wth ncreasng or decreasng of equty ndex at least 0.5%. The remanng news artcles contans the thrd category. The threshold s of +/- 0.5% was chosen for tradng sessons so that one-thrd part of t roughly falls n each of the three categores. Durng ts operatonal phase the prototype categorzed all newly publshed artcles. The numbers of news artcles n each category were counted and dependng on where the most news artcles were appont to, the prototype actvated for the correspondng ndex a buy recommendaton, a short recommendaton, or advsed to do nothng. 2.2 Prototype developed by Lavrenko et al. The prototype Enalyst was developed around 2000 at the Unversty of Massachusetts Amherst [9][10][11]. Enalyst ams to predct stocks n very short-term.e. ntraday prce trends of a subset by nvestgatng the homepage of YAHOO. 2.3 Prototype developed by Thomas et al. Ths prototype was developed at the Robotcs Insttute of Carnege Mellon Unversty between 2000 and 2004 [12][13]. Ths prototype manly focused on forecastng the nstablty. In ths strategy once news s publshed that may ncrease nstablty the market s temporarly ext for partcular stock. Then the decson of re-enterng nto market s depends on techncal ndcators. Genetc Programmng [14] s used for nterpretng the future state of the stock market. Based on parallel search, natural selecton and hstorcal data t generates the decson tree for takng decson. Evoluton based Functonal Lnk Artfcal Neural Network (FLANN) [15] s used to predct the Indan stock market. The model s based on the Back-Propagaton (BP) algorthm and Dfferental Evoluton (DE) algorthm. The FLANN s a sngle layer, sngle neuron archtecture whch Paper ID: SUB

3 has the capablty to form complex decson regons by creatng non-lnear decson boundares. 3. Implementaton Detals The technque of Market Event Predcton uses nformaton (hstorcal) system for the predcton of future market state and for makng the useful decson.e. whether to buy, sell or holds the shares at a perfect tme. In prevous works event extracton from fnancal news was done manually, whch s very tedous ob therefore, there s need to tackle ths problem by changng the nformaton selecton crtera. Here we consder the closng prces of the shares of respectve day whch reduces effort that are requred to processng the news nformaton. For nterpretng the future state of stock market, the techncal tradng ndcator s very mportant. Techncal tradng ndcator such as Smple Movng Average (SMA), the Bollnger Band (BB), the Exponental Movng Average (EMA), the Rate of Change (RoC), Momentum (MOM), and Movng Average Convergence Dvergence (MACD) and relaton- shp s calculate whch are tran by Nave Bayes classfer. The overall framework s shown n fgure.1 Dataset.e. closng prces of shares s collected from mcxnda.com. Collected dataset s used for calculatng techncal tradng ndcator and for defnng the rule. Then we used Nave Bayes algorthm for tranng of techncal tradng ndcator for generatng the sgnals. The followng steps are executed for sgnal generaton. 3.1 Techncal Tradng Indcator Smple Movng Average (SMA) Smple Movng Average s the most mportant techncal tradng ndcator that wll gves the averages of last 20 days of the prce of the stock and s calculated as: N =1 P M = (1) N Where P represents the prce on day. When the prce s exceed than the movng average n a downward movement then sell sgnal s generated and when the prce s less n a upward movement then buy sgnal s generated Bollnger Bands (BB) The Bollnger bands s a another techncal ndcator whch makes two bands.e. upper band and lower band around a movng average and that are based on the standard devaton of the prce. The bands wll wde and narrow f and only f the volatlty s hgh and low respectvely. L = M 2 σ M (2) U = M + 2 σ M (3) Where, σ M s for the volatlty of movng average M. When the prce s under the lower band a buy sgnal wll generated, as an oversold stuaton and when the prce s greater than the upper band a sell sgnal wll generated at an overbought stuaton Exponental Movng Average (EMA) By usng a short and a durable average, the exponental movng average (EMA) dentfy trends. The new trend s starts f the averages cross each other. As an example f the short-term average s set at 5 days and the long-term average at 20 days then EMA s calculated as follows. E = 2 N+1 P E 1 + E 1 (4) Where P represents the on a day, and N s the total number of day. A buy sgnal s generated f the short term average crosses the long term average upwards and f the short term average crosses the long term average n downwards a sell sgnal s generated Rate of Change (RoC) Rate of change techncal ndcator s very mportant whch calculates the dfference between the closng prce of the current day and the closng prce of 10 days earler. It s calculated as: C = P P 10 P 10 (5) A sell sgnal s generated f the R o C starts decreasng above 0 and a buy sgnal s generated f RoC starts ncreasng below Momentum Ths ndcator s same lke as RoC and uses same formula. It wll generate the buy sgnal when the momentum crosses the zero level nstead of after a peak. A sell sgnal s generated when the R o C crosses the zero level downwards Movng Average Convergence Dvergence (MACD) The movng average convergence dvergence s another techncal ndcator that subtracts two exponental averages from each other. If there are two exponental averages namely as 12 and the 26-day exponental average then MACD wll calculated as: D = E[12] E[26] (6) When the MACD reaches zero level n an upward moton a buy sgnal s generated and when a MACD breaks through the zero n downward moton sell sgnal s generated.

4 Fgure1: System Archtecture 3.2 Assocaton Rule Mnng Generate Rules When techncal tradng values are collected then, the techncal tradng values for each day are modeled. Dependng upon the predcton date gven by the user the mappng s done and rules are generated. Each rule has one fact. For example If Share Prce= and SMA= then Sgnal=Buy. In ths Prce= and SMA= s a rule and Sgnal=Buy s a fact. Smlarly, for each day all techncal ndcators generate rules Facts Facts are nothng but the Buy/Sell/Hold sgnals generated by the rules. These facts gve the predcton to user whether to buy/sell/hold the shares. When we receve the multple facts from the multple rules the probablty of all facts are calculated and the correspondng sgnal s predcted to the user Generate sgnal After the rule mappng process the correspondng predcton for the shares.e. Sell/Buy/Hold s provded to the user. Accordng to ths predcton, the user decdes hs/her strategy. 3.3 The Nave Bayes Model Naïve Bayes classfer s used to tran the techncal ndcator. Rules whch are generated by usng all techncal ndcator values are traned by the Naïve Bayes. Bayesan classfer s based on Bayes theorem. Nave Bayesan classfers assume that the effect of techncal ndcator values on a gven class s ndependent of the values of the other techncal ndcator. Ths assumpton s called class condtonal ndependence. The nave Bayesan classfer works as follows: Let S be a tranng set of techncal ndcator lke SMA, BB, EMA, RoC, Momentum, MACD wth ther class labels and there are k classes, C 1, C 2, C 3..., C n. Each techncal ndcator s represented by an n-dmensonal vector, X=fx 1, x 2,...,x n depctng n measured values of the n attrbutes, A 1, A 2, A 3..., A n, respectvely. Gven a techncal ndcator X, the classfer wll predct that X belongs to the class havng the hghest probablty of the smlarty, condtoned on X. That s X s predcted to belong to the class C f and only f P (C X) > P (C X) for 1 m;. Bayes theorem: P C X = P X C P(C ) (7) P(X) Naïve Bayes Algorthm Learnng Phase: Gven a tranng set S, 1. For each target value of c (c c1,,c L ) Pˆ( C c ) estmate P( C c ) wth examples n S; 2. For every attrbute value a 3. Pˆ( X x ( 1,, n; k 1,,N ) a k of each attrbute C c ) estmate P( X C c ) wth examples n S; Output: condtonal probablty for elements x, N L Test Phase: Gven an unknown nstance X = (a 1,.., a n ) Look up to assgn the label c* to X f 4. Result and Dataset k a The proposed method can be evaluated n the context of two dfferent data sets collected from xgnte 1, mcxnda 2. 1) A closng prces of the shares at the end of the day takes from xgnte 1. 2) The another source s barchartondemand 2 whch s used for collecton of company name, closng prce of the shares closng prces of the shares. k Paper ID: SUB

5 Fgure 2: Graph of Share prces 1. gacy/1/getstckheadlnes Concluson Fgure 5: Fnal Sgnal The presented method for predcton of stock market consders only closng prces of the shares nstead of textual nformaton about the stocks. Ths reduces the efforts that are requred for the extracton of news nformaton. The tradng strateges consder techncal tradng ndcators, whch are used to generate the superor returns. The techncal tradng ndcator gve decson that s more approprate. Data mnng technque such as assocaton rule mmng and Naïve Bayes algorthm generates sgnfcant sgnals wthn the polynomal tme. It also ncreased the accuracy of the predcton system by acceptng the accurate closng prces of the stock. 6. Future Scope Fgure 3: Collected Share Prces The future work wll focus on ncludng more techncal ndcators whch wll generate the tradng strateges. The nteracton between events occurrng wthn the same day, or wthn fner tme ntervals wll be consdered. 7.
