Chaos Theory

A theory stating that seemingly unrelated events affect each other in a predictable, mathematical way. In investing, chaos theory is used to predict future stock prices using information that does not seem to affect prices directly, such as trading volume and trader sentiment. Computing these factors using chaos theory is as complex as it is controversial.
