Abstract Predicting the stock market is considered to be a very difficult task due to its non-linear and dynamic nature. Our proposed system is designed in such a way that even a layman can use it. It reduces the burden on the user. The user's job is to give only the recent closing prices of a stock as input and the proposed Recommender system will instruct him when to buy and when to sell if it is profitable or not to buy share in case if it is not profitable to do trading. Using soft computing based techniques is considered to be more suitable for predicting trends in stock market where the data is chaotic and large in number. The soft computing based systems are capable of extracting relevant information from large sets of data by discovering hidden patterns in the data. Here regression trees are used for dimensionality reduction and clustering is done with the help of Self Organizing Maps (SOM). The proposed system is designed to assist stock market investors identify possible profit-making opportunities and also help in developing a better understanding on how to extract the relevant information from stock price data.
