The purpose of this project was to develop models for the accurate prediction of future stock prices for short periods of time. To this end, we constructed four models which were able to make these predictions with a reasonable margin of error. Using our best model, we were able to make accurate predictions for 15 out of 20 stocks for 18 days or more. These models can be used by small investors as a tool for investment decisions.
