## Abstract

We evaluate NASDAQ Composite Index prediction models with Ensemble Learning (ML) and Ridge Regression1,2,3,4 and conclude that the NASDAQ Composite Index stock is predictable in the short/long term. According to price forecasts for (n+16 weeks) period: The dominant strategy among neural network is to Buy NASDAQ Composite Index stock.

Keywords: NASDAQ Composite Index, NASDAQ Composite Index, stock forecast, machine learning based prediction, risk rating, buy-sell behaviour, stock analysis, target price analysis, options and futures.

## Key Points

1. Can statistics predict the future?
2. What is the best way to predict stock prices?
3. Fundemental Analysis with Algorithmic Trading

## NASDAQ Composite Index Target Price Prediction Modeling Methodology

We consider NASDAQ Composite Index Stock Decision Process with Ridge Regression where A is the set of discrete actions of NASDAQ Composite Index stock holders, F is the set of discrete states, P : S × F × S → R is the transition probability distribution, R : S × F → R is the reaction function, and γ ∈ [0, 1] is a move factor for expectation.1,2,3,4

F(Ridge Regression)5,6,7= $\begin{array}{cccc}{p}_{a1}& {p}_{a2}& \dots & {p}_{1n}\\ & ⋮\\ {p}_{j1}& {p}_{j2}& \dots & {p}_{jn}\\ & ⋮\\ {p}_{k1}& {p}_{k2}& \dots & {p}_{kn}\\ & ⋮\\ {p}_{n1}& {p}_{n2}& \dots & {p}_{nn}\end{array}$ X R(Ensemble Learning (ML)) X S(n):→ (n+16 weeks) $\stackrel{\to }{R}=\left({r}_{1},{r}_{2},{r}_{3}\right)$

## NASDAQ Composite Index Stock Forecast (Buy or Sell) for (n+16 weeks)

Sample Set: Neural Network
Stock/Index: NASDAQ Composite Index NASDAQ Composite Index
Time series to forecast n: 03 Sep 2022 for (n+16 weeks)

According to price forecasts for (n+16 weeks) period: The dominant strategy among neural network is to Buy NASDAQ Composite Index stock.

X axis: *Likelihood% (The higher the percentage value, the more likely the event will occur.)

Y axis: *Potential Impact% (The higher the percentage value, the more likely the price will deviate.)

Z axis (Yellow to Green): *Technical Analysis%

## Conclusions

NASDAQ Composite Index assigned short-term Ba3 & long-term B2 forecasted stock rating. We evaluate the prediction models Ensemble Learning (ML) with Ridge Regression1,2,3,4 and conclude that the NASDAQ Composite Index stock is predictable in the short/long term. According to price forecasts for (n+16 weeks) period: The dominant strategy among neural network is to Buy NASDAQ Composite Index stock.
