In financial forecasting, a long-standing challenging issue is to develop an appropriate model for forecasting long-term risk management of enterprises. In this chapter, using financial markets as an example, we introduce a mixture price trend model for long-term forecasts of financial asset prices with a view to applying it for long-term financial risk management. The key idea of the mixture price trend model is to provide a general and flexible way to incorporate various price trend behaviors and to extract information from price trends for long-term forecasting. Indeed, the mixture price trend model can incorporate model uncertainty in the price trend model, which is a key element for risk management and is overlooked in some of the current literatures. The mixture price trend model also allows the incorporation of users' subjective views on long-term price trends. An efficient estimation method is introduced. Statistical analysis of the proposed model based on real data will be conducted to illustrate the performance of the model.
