Forecasting daily stock price is an important task in financial time series area. And it is known that the singular value decomposition Entropy has a predictive power for stock market. This study attempts to develop various models and compare their performances in predicting the daily KOSPI200 index. The models are based on a singular value decomposition process which has various correlation and entropy methods: Pearson correlation, Kendall correlation, Shannon entropy, Renyi entropy, Max-entropy, Min-entropy. Input variables include moving time window singular value decomposition entropy series which are the combination of two correlations and four entropies. Support Vector Regression is used to predict daily KOSPI200 index and the model performance is evaluated using accuracy measures such as MAE, MAPE, and RMSE of the forecasting values. As a result of its application, investors may have a guidance of their trading strategy.
