ABSTRACT
The authors predict the direction of movement of the S&P CNX NIFTY Market Index using Support Vector Machines (SVM) and Random Forest Method (RFM). The performance of these techniques is benchmarked against the neural network, logit and discriminant models. The experimental analysis suggests that SVM outperforms RFM, which in turn outperforms neural network, discriminant analysis and logit. SVM models will be useful in evolving successful investment strategies while operating in the stock market.
