Machine learning and artificial intelligence techniques are being used in conjunction with data mining to solve a plethora of real world problems. These techniques have proven to be highly effective, yielding maximum accuracy with minimal monetary investment and also saving huge amounts of time. To add to their annual income, nowadays, people have started looking at stock investments as a lucrative option. With expert guidance and intelligent planning, we can almost double our annual revenue through stock returns. That said, stock investment still remains a risky proposition for the uninitiated. Exorbitant wages of the investment experts coupled with a general ignorance pertaining to the financial matters among the public, deters many from trading in stocks. The fear of losses also acts as a deterrent to many. These facts propelled us to harness the power of machine learning to predict the movement of stocks. Using sentiment analysis on the tweets collected using the Twitter API and also the closing values of various stocks, we seek to build a system that forecasts the stock price movement of various companies. Such a prediction would greatly help a potential stock investor in taking informed decisions which would directly contribute to his profits.
