NeuroShell Trader produces two versions of a prediction, a version meant to be displayed on charts that is labeled “Prediction” and a version meant to be used as input to predictions and trading strategies that is labeled “Prediction Signal”.
When adding a prediction to a chart or creating an indicator to be displayed on a chart, you may want to use the “Prediction” version of a prediction. The reason to do this is so that all predictions and indicators with predictions as inputs, will be placed on the graph at the date in which it is being predicted for. Doing so aligns the predictions to the actual prediction line for easy comparison and enables the prediction line and indicators based upon the prediction to extend out into the future.
When adding a prediction to a trading strategy/prediction or creating an indicator to be used in a trading strategy/prediction, NeuroShell Trader will only allow selection of the “Prediction Signal” version of a prediction. It does this so that when the prediction is used as an input, you are using a predicted future value on the day it is predicted instead of an old predicted value for the current day.
Having these two versions of a prediction available may create a problem if you try to add an indicator from your chart that uses an “Prediction” as one of its inputs to a trading strategy or prediction. You should not add this indicator as an input because the indicator displayed on your chart contains the “Prediction” version of a prediction. Instead you should rebuild this indicator so that it uses the “Prediction Signal” version of the prediction. By rebuilding the indicator, you will be using a predicted future value on the day it is predicted instead of an old predicted value for the current day.
