A stock (also known as equity) is a security that represents the ownership of a fraction of a corporation. This entitles the owner of the stock to a proportion of the corporation's assets and profits equal to how much stock they own. Units of stock are called "shares."
In today's finance world stock trading is one of the most significant exercises. Stock market prediction is a demonstration of attempting to decide the future estimation of the stock price and other monetary characteristics related to stock trading. This paper clarifies the forecast of a stock making use of Machine Learning. The technical and central or the time series analysis is utilized by the a large portion of the stockbrokers while making the stock forecasts.
Primarily, only numerical data was being used for stock prediction. A much better and accurate way is to use of fundamental analysis i.e. to factor in the real economy into the predictions. Using news articles to predict the stock movement on a daily basis is much more reliable.
Naive Bayes, Random Forests, Perceptrons and Linear Support Vector Machines are the Machine Learning methods which have been used for prediction. Linear support vector machines are highly regarded as one of the better text classification machine learning techniques.
