MOGHADDAM, Amin Hedayati; MOGHADDAM, Moein Hedayati  and  ESFANDYARI, Morteza. Stock market index prediction using artificial neural network. Journal of Economics, Finance and Administrative Science [online]. 2016, vol.21, n.41, pp.89-93. ISSN 2077-1886.

In this study the ability of artificial neural network (ANN) in forecasting the daily NASDAQ stock exchange rate was investigated. Several feed forward ANNs that were trained by the back propagation algorithm have been assessed. The methodology used in this study considered the short-term historical stock prices as well as the day of week as inputs. Daily stock exchange rates of NASDAQ from January 28, 2015 to 18 June, 2015 are used to develop a robust model. First 70 days (January 28 to March 7) are selected as training dataset and the last 29 days are used for testing the model prediction ability. Networks for NASDAQ index prediction for two type of input dataset (four prior days and nine prior days) were developed and validated
