Abstract

The stock market measures the strength of numerous companies listed on various exchanges. To make money, economists and traders buy and sell companies’ assets depending on the asset’s strength. In an effort to predict the strength of assets, we researched and developed two models based on the historic prices of these assets. Although these models did not provide a high level of accuracy, we believe that improvements can be made to make these models useful for the modern stock trader.
