Multiple online auctions need complex bidding decisions for selecting which auction to participate in, whether to place single or multiple bids, do early or late bidding and how much to bid. This paper designs a novel fuzzy dynamic bidding agent (FDBA) which uses a comprehensive method for initial price estimation and price forecasting. First, FDBA selects an auction to participate in and calculates its initial price based on clustering and bid selection approach. Then the price of the auction is forecasted based on the estimated initial price, attitude of the bidders to win the auction and the competition assessment for the late bidders using fuzzy reasoning technique. The experiments demonstrated improved price forecasting outcomes using the proposed approach.
