A study was conducted to predict stock markets using information contained in articles published on the Web. Mostly textual articles appearing in the leading and influential financial newspapers were taken as input. From those articles, the daily closing values of major stock market indices in Asia, Europe and America were predicted. Textual statements contain not only the effect but also why it happened. Exploiting textual information in addition to numeric time series data increases the quality of the input. Hence, improved predictions are expected.
