Countries across the globe have cultural and socioeconomic differences that can translate into significantly different behaviors of their respective stock market. In this article it is analyzed if neural networks applied to four different countries such as France, China, Germany and Japan, produce similar results. Neural networks are a powerful machine learning approach that has been applied in several stock markets for forecasting purposes. The simplicity of application and relative accurate forecast are likely some of the reasons behind the expansion of usage of these techniques in finance. It will be shown in this article that while there are significant differences between these four market neural networks seem to produce comparable but not identical results in all the four markets analyzed.
