The present paper employs an Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) Improved via Genetic Algorithm (IPSO) based on Support Vector Machines (SVM) for efficient prediction of various stock indices. The main difference between PSO and IPSO is shown in a graph. Different indicators from the technical analysis field of study are used as input features. To forecast the price of a stock, the correlation between stock prices of different companies has been used. It is in general observed that the proposed
