Keywords : Chartist Analysis , Chaotic Models - Chaos Theory

This thesis consists of two parts in which neither part deals explicitly with prediction. However, the difficulties of prediction are both the origin of and the common link in this thesis, even though each part tackles the problem from a different point of view. That prediction is a problem for financial markets is revealed by the very existence of insurance arrangements for those markets - if the future was not associated with uncertainty, there would be no risks and insurance markets would not exist.
