[docs]def load_simple_stock_selection():
"""Simple stock selection decision matrix.
This matrix was designed primarily for teaching and evaluating the behavior
of an experiment.
Among the data we can find: two maximization criteria (ROE, CAP),
one minimization criterion (RI), dominated alternatives (FX), and
one alternative with an outlier criterion (ROE, MM = 1).
The criteria and alternatives in Scikit-Criteria are original
to the authors, but the numerical values used were taken from
an unknown source that has since been forgotten.
Description:
In order to decide to buy a series of stocks, a company studied 5 candidate
investments: PE, JN, AA, FX, MM and GN. The finance department decides to
consider the following criteria for selection:
1. ROE (Max): Return % for each monetary unit invested.
2. CAP (Max): Years of market capitalization.
3. RI (Min): Risk of the stock.

r"""Dataset extracted from from historical time series cryptocurrencies.
This dataset is extracted from::
Van Heerden, N., Cabral, J. y Luczywo, N. (2021). EvaluaciÃ³n de la
importancia de criterios para la selecciÃ³n de criptomonedas.
XXXIV ENDIO - XXXII EPIO Virtual 2021, Argentina.
The nine available alternatives are based on the ranking of the 20
cryptocurrencies with the largest market capitalization calculated on the
basis of circulating supply, according to information retrieved from
Cryptocurrency Historical Prices" retrieved on July 21st, 2021, from
there only the coins with complete data between October 9th, 2018 to July
6th of 2021, excluding stable-coins, since they maintain a stable price and
therefore do not carry associated yields; the alternatives that met these
requirements turned out to be: Cardano (ADA), Binance coin (BNB),
Bitcoin (BTC), Dogecoin (DOGE), Ethereum (ETH), Chainlink (LINK),
Litecoin (LTC), Stellar (XLM) and Ripple (XRP).
Two decision matrices were created for two sizes of overlapping moving
windows: 7 and 15 days. Six criteria were defined on these windows that
seek to represent returns and risks:
- ``xRv`` - average Window return (:math:`\bar{x}RV`) - Maximize: is the
average of the differences between the closing price of the
cryptocurrency on the last day and the first day of each window, divided
by the price on the first day.
- ``sRV`` - window return deviation (:math:`sRV`) - Minimize: is the
standard deviation of window return. The greater the deviation, the
returns within the windows have higher variance and are unstable.
- ``xVV`` - average of the volume of the window (:math:`\bar{x}VV`) -
Maximize: it is the average of the summations of the transaction amount
of the cryptocurrency in dollars in each window, representing a liquidity
measure of the asset.
- ``sVV`` - window volume deviation (:math:`sVV`) - Minimize: it is the
deviation of the window volumes. The greater the deviation, the volumes
within the windows have higher variance and are unstable.
- ``xR2`` - mean of the correlation coefficient (:math:`\bar{x}R^2`) -
Maximize: it is the mean of the :math:`R^2` of the fit of the linear
trends with respect to the data. It is a measure that defines how well it
explains that linear trend to the data within the window.
- ``xm`` - mean of the slope (:math:`\bar{x}m`) - Maximize: it is the mean
of the slope of the linear trend between the closing prices in dollars
and the volumes traded in dollars of the cryptocurrency within each
window.
Parameters
----------
windows_size: 7 o 15, default 7
If the decision matrix based on 7 or 15 day overlapping moving windows
is desired.
