Abstract

The stock market has always been compared to a living being. It goes up and down just as an organism breathes and moves. Therefore, it always been said that predicting the stock market is impossible. But is that really true? With the advanced technology available today, there has to be a way to project short term closing prices for individual stocks. This IQP explores various methods for predicting the behavior of individual stocks through the use of the MatLab program language.
