ARIMA models are known to berobust and efficient in financial time series forecastingespecially short-term prediction than even the most popularANNs techniques ([8, 9, 10]. It has been extensively used infield of economics and finance. Other statistics models areregression method, exponential smoothing, generalizedautoregressive conditional heteroskedasticity (GARCH).Few related works that has engaged ARIMA model forforecasting includes [11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16].In this paper extensive process of building ARIMAmodels for short-term stock price prediction is presented.The results obtained from real-life data demonstrated thepotential strength of ARIMA models to provide investorsshort-term prediction that could aid investment decisionmaking process.The rest of the paper is organized as follows. Section 2presents brief overview of ARIMA model. Section 3describes the methodology used while section 4 discussesthe experimental results obtained. The paper is concluded insection 5.Abstract— Stock price prediction is an important topic infinance and economics which has spurred the interest ofresearchers over the years to develop better predictive models.The autoregressive integrated moving average (ARIMA)models have been explored in literature for time seriesprediction. This paper presents extensive process of buildingstock price predictive model using the ARIMA model.Published stock data obtained from New York Stock Exchange(NYSE) and Nigeria Stock Exchange (NSE) are used with stockprice predictive model developed. Results obtained revealedthat the ARIMA model has a strong potential for short-termprediction and can compete favourably with existingtechniques for stock price prediction.Keywords- ARIMA model, Stock Price prediction, Stockmarket, Short-term prediction.I.INTRODUCTIONPrediction will continue to be an interesting area ofresearch making researchers in the domain field alwaysdesiring to improve existing predictive models. The reasonis that institutions and individuals are empowered to makeinvestment decisions and ability to plan and developeffective strategy about their daily and future endevours.Stock price prediction is regarded as one of most difficulttask to accomplish in financial forecasting due to complexnature of stock market [1, 2, 3]. The desire of manyinvestors is to lay hold of any forecasting method that couldguarantee easy profiting and minimize investment risk fromthe stock market. This remains a motivating factor forresearchers to evolve and develop new predictive models[4].In the past years several models and techniques had beendeveloped to stock price prediction. Among them areartificial neural networks (ANNs) model which are verypopular due to its ability to learn patterns from data andinfer solution from unknown data. Few related works thatengaged ANNs model to stock price prediction are [5, 6, 7].In recent time, hybrid approaches has also been engaged toimprove stock price predictive models by exploiting theunique strength of each of them [2]. ANNs is from artificialintelligence perspectives.ARIMA models are from statistical models perspectives.Generally, it is reported in literature that prediction can bedone from two perspectives: statistical and artificial978-1-4799-4923-6/14 31.00 2014 IEEEDOI 10.1109/UKSim.2014.67II.ARIMA MODELBox and Jenkins in 1970 introduced the ARIMA model.It also referred to as Box-Jenkins methodology composed ofset of activities for identifying, estimating and diagnosingARIMA models with time series data. The model is mostprominent methods in financial forecasting [1, 12, 9].ARIMA models have shown efficient capability to generateshort-term forecasts. It constantly outperformed complexstructural models in short-term prediction [17]. In ARIMAmodel, the future value of a variable is a linear combinationof past values and past errors, expressed as follows:Yt φ0 φ1Yt 1 φ2Yt 2 . φpYt p εt θ1εt 1 θ2εt 2 . θqεt q(1)where,Yt is the actual value andθ j areε t is the random error at t, φi andthe coefficients, p and q are integers that are oftenreferred to as autoregressive andrespectively.105moving average,

The steps in building ARIMA predictive model consist ofmodel identification, parameter estimation and diagnosticchecking [18].III.Figure 2 is the correlogram of Nokia time series. From thegraph, the ACF dies down extremely slowly which simplymeans that the time series is nonstationary. If the series isnot stationary, it is converted to a stationary series bydifferencing. After the first difference, the series“DCLOSE” of Nokia stock index becomes stationary asshown in figure 3 and figure 4 of the line graph andcorrelogram respectively.METHODOLOGYThe method used in this study to develop ARIMA modelfor stock price forecasting is explained in detail insubsections below. The tool used for implementation isEviews software version 5. Stock data used in this researchwork are historical daily stock prices obtained from twocountries stock exchanged. The data composed of fourelements, namely: open price, low price, high price andclose price respectively. In this research the closing price ischosen to represent the price of the index to be predicted.Closing price is chosen because it reflects all the activitiesof the index in a trading day.To determine the best ARIMA model among severalexperiments performed, the following criteria are used inthis study for each stock index. Relatively small of BIC (Bayesian or SchwarzInformation Criterion) Relatively small standard error of regression (S.E.of regression) Relatively high of adjusted R2 Q-statistics and correlogram show that there is nosignificant pattern left in the autocorrelationfunctions (ACFs) and partial autocorrelationfunctions (PACFs) of the residuals, it means theresidual of the selected model are white noise.The subsections below described the processes ofARIMA model-development.Figure 2: The correlogram of Nokia stock price indexA. ARIMA (p, d, q) Model for Nokia Stock IndexNokia stock data used in this study covers the periodfrom 25th April, 1995 to 25th February, 2011 having a totalnumber of 3990 observations. Figure 1 depicts the originalpattern of the series to have general overview whether thetime series is stationary or not. From the graph below thetime series have random walk pattern.Figure 3: Graphical representation of the Nokia stock price index afterdifferencing .Figure 4: The correlogram of Nokia stock price index after firstdifferencingFigure 1: Graphical representation of the Nokia stock closing price index106

In figure 5 the model checking was done withAugmented Dickey Fuller (ADF) unit root test on“DCLOSE” of Nokia stock index. The result confirms thatthe series becomes stationary after the first-difference of theseries.Figure 7 is the residual of the series. If the model isgood, the residuals (difference between actual and predictedvalues) of the model are series of random errors. Since thereare no significant spikes of ACFs and PACFs, it means thatthe residual of the selected ARIMA model are white noise,no other significant patterns left in the time series.Therefore, there is no need to consider any AR(p) andMA(q) further.Figure 7: Correlogram of residuals of the Nokia stock index.Figure 5: ADF unit root test for DCLOSE of Nokia stock index.In forecasting form, the best model selected can beexpressed as follows:Yt θ1Yt 1 θ 2Yt 2 ε t(2)Table 1 shows the different parameters of autoregressive(p) and moving average (q) among the several ARIMAmodel experimented upon . ARIMA (2, 1, 0) is consideredthe best for Nokia stock index as shown in figure 6.
