  abstract =     "Today stock market exchange and finance are centres of
                 attention all over the world. In finance, arbitrage is
                 the practice of taking advantage of a price
                 misalignment between two or more stock markets where
                 profit can be earned by striking a combination of
                 matching deals that capitalise upon the misalignment.
                 If one strikes when misalignment has been observed,
                 such deals are practically risk-free. However, when
                 risk-free profit is around, everyone would compete to
                 take advantage of it. Therefore, the question is
                 whether arbitrage opportunities can be predicted; after
                 all, misalignment does not happen instantaneously.
                 Furthermore, financial operators do not like black
                 boxes in forecasting. In this paper, we will present a
                 type-2 Fuzzy Logic System (FLS) for the modelling and
                 prediction of financial applications. The proposed
                 system is capable of generating summarised models from
                 pre-specified number of linguistic rules, which enables
                 the user to understand the generated models for
                 arbitrage opportunities prediction. The system is able
                 to use this summarised model for the prediction of
                 arbitrage opportunities in stock markets. We have
                 performed several experiments based on the arbitrage
                 data which is used in stock markets to spot ahead of
                 time arbitrage opportunities. The proposed type-2 FLS
                 has outperformed the Evolving Decision Rule (EDR)
                 procedure (which is based on Genetic Programming (GP)
                 and decision trees). Like GP, the type-2 FLS is capable
                 of providing a white box model which could be easily
                 understood and analysed by the lay user.",
