Several association rule mining algorithms exist, and among them, Apriori is one of the most commonly used methods for extracting frequent item sets from vast databases and generating association rules to gain insights. In this research, we have applied a data mining technique to implement association rules and explore frequent item sets. Our study introduced a model that employs association rules to uncover associations between the foreign exchange market, the gold commodity, and the National Association of Securities Dealers automated quotations (NASDAQ). We suggested a method that used data mining to identify the good points of buying and selling in the foreign exchange market by utilizing technical indicators such as moving average convergence divergence (MACD) and the stochastic indicator to create association rules. The experimental findings indicate that the proposed model successfully generates strong association rules.
