Currently I am playing around with time series forecasts (specifically for Forex). I have seen some scientific papers about echo state networks which are applied to Forex forecast. Are there other good machine learning algorithms for this purpose?

It would also be interesting to extract "profitable" patterns from the time series.


Here are three survey papers that examine the use of machine learning in time series forecasting:

"...multilayer perceptron, Bayesian neural networks, radial basis functions, generalized regression neural networks (also called kernel regression), K-nearest neighbor regression, CART regression trees, support vector regression, and Gaussian processes."

"...that artificial neural networks (ANNs) are the dominant machine learning technique in this area."

"...the formalization of one-step forecasting problems as supervised learning tasks, the discussion of local learning techniques as an effective tool for dealing with temporal data, and the role of the forecasting strategy when we move from one-step to multiple-step forecasting."
