Stock Market Analysis and Prediction

  title={Stock Market Analysis and Prediction},
  author={Eric R. Alexander and Emily Kawaler and Danielle Albers Szafir},
Stock market analysis is a widely studied problem as it offers practical applications for signal processing and predictive methods and a tangible financial reward. Creating a system that yields consistent returns is extremely challenging and is currently an open problem as stock market prices are extremely volatile and vary widely both within a given stock and comparatively amongst many stocks. Further, stock market data is influenced by a large number of factors including foreign and domestic…

Textual analysis of stock market prediction using breaking financial news: The AZFin text system
This research examines a predictive machine learning approach for financial news articles analysis using several different textual representations: bag of words, noun phrases, and named entities and found that a Proper Noun scheme performs better than the de facto standard of Bag of Words in all three metrics.

Hybrid Intelligent Systems for Stock Market Analysis
The application of hybridized soft computing techniques for automated stock market forecasting and trend analysis using a neural network for one day ahead stock forecasting and a neuro-fuzzy system for analyzing the trend of the predicted stock values are made use.
Entropy and predictability of stock market returns
Abstract We examine the predictability of stock market returns by employing a new metric entropy measure of dependence with several desirable properties. We compare our results with a number of
