Abstract: In order to avoid the predictive mismatching that exists between different technical trading rules for predicting stock process, new rules capable of using all the information offered for a wide variety of rules are provided. The system for combining the different types of predictions given by trading rules is based on statistical learning methods (Boosting, and several model averaging methods like Bayesian, or simple averaging methods). When applied to simple and exponential moving average rules designed for predicting the Spanish IBEX35 stock index from January 1998 to December 2007, statistical learning methods supply better out-ofsample results than most of the single moving average rules. In general, the trading strategies based on filtered statistical learning methods are considerably superior to B&H strategy and the behaviour of the filtered statistical learning models reveal a better performance in terms of economic fitness measures during the movements of IBEX35 in clear up-trends and down-trends.
