English Understanding and predicting extreme turning points in the financial market, such as financial bubbles and crashes, has attracted much attention in recent years. Experimental observations of the superexponential increase of prices before crashes indicate the predictability of financial extremes. In this study, we aim to forecast extreme events in the stock market using 19-year time-series data (January 2000– December 2018) of the financial market, covering 12 kinds of worldwide stock indices. In addition, we propose an extremes indicator through the network, which is constructed from the price time series using a weighted visual graph algorithm. Experimental results on 12 stock indices show that the proposed indicators can predict financial extremes very well.
