|Title:||On the profitability of technical trading rules based on artificial neural networks:: Evidence from the Madrid stock market||Authors:||Fernández-Rodríguez, Fernando

Our results, based on applying this investment strategy to the General Index of the Madrid Stock Market, suggest that, in absence of trading costs, the technical trading rule is always superior to a buy-and-hold strategy for both "bear" market and "stable" market episodes. On the other hand, we find that the buy-and-hold strategy generates higher returns than the trading rule based on ANN only for a "bull" market subperiod. (C) 2000 Elsevier Science S.A.
