Abstract

This paper is a continuation of our research work on the Nigerian Stock Exchange Market (NSEM) uncertainties, In our previous work (Magaji et al, 2013) we presented the Naive Bayes and SVM-SMO algorithms as a tools for predicting the Nigerian Stock Exchange Market; subsequently we used the same transformed data of the NSEM and explored the implementation of the Logistic function on Back-propagation algorithm on the WEKA platform, and results obtained, made us to also conclude that the Back-propagation model of Artificial Neural Network (ANN) performed very well and thus it is another algorithm that can effectively and efficiently be used for predicting the Nigerian Stock Exchange Market.
