This paper evaluates the use of an artificial neural network within a stockmarket trading strategy. The neural network was previously developed by the same authors, and has been trained using fundamental, company specific data. This study sites the neural network within a trading context, and demonstrates it is capable of producing economically significant results after accounting for costs.
