Exchange rate modeling withuse of relative binary representation

Krzysztof Piasecki , Michał Stasiak


Many methods of exchange rate modeling are based on candlestick repre-sentation. This kind of representation causes a decrease in the value of information, resulting in a lower quality of modeling. Therefore, the binary representation seems to be more effective. In the binary representation, an increaseof the price by assumed discretization unitis assigned a number ‚1‘, and the decrease is assigned ‚0‘. In this paper we propose a new method of exchange rate trajectory binarization, that is, a relative binary representation, in which changeable discretization unitis directly pro-portional to the current exchange rate. Also, in the article, we performed a detailed comparative analysis of the possibilities of assessing the probability of future ex-change rates’ changes distribution for each considered binary representation. Re-search was performed with use of five-year quotations (2013-2018), for the AUD/NZD currency pair. During the research we used dedicated software, written in MQL4 and C++ languages.
