Abstract: In this paper we propose an Artificial Neural Network model for forecasting exchange rate of Kina against AUD. We use daily exchange rate data during the period of 2 January 2008 to 30 November 2012. The proposed model is compared with autoregressive time series model, exponential smoothing with trend; and Holt-Winter multiplicative and adaptive models. The performance of the models was measured by using various error functions such as root square mean error, mean absolute error, mean absolute deviation, and mean absolute percentage error. The results reveal that the proposed ANN model is an efficient tool for forecasting Kina against AUD more accurately.

Keywords: exchange rate forecasting; exchange rates; artificial neural networks; ANNs; autoregressive time series; exponential smoothing; Holt-Winter multiplicative; adaptive models; Kina; AUD; time series modelling.
