Beginner traders and investors have a hard time gauging the volatility of the market. Because of this, it is easy to make the wrong business decisions which might lead to a higher risk of loss. This project combines the use of non-traditional market indicators and common technology to provide market movement predictions. We researched common market indicators and combined the findings with the Chicago Board Options Exchange’s (CBOE) Volatility Index (VIX) to create an efficient analysis of future trends for a security, index or a sector. We hope that this project will allow beginner investors and traders to easily assess and validate their positions in the market as well as to point out potential trends for the market
