A study in stock market analysis using machine learning algorithms to generate a stock price prediction five minutes into the future. Artificial intelligence algorithms were developed to adaptively choose how to invest money using the generated pre- dictions. The system was applied to over 1200 days of stock price data for over 25 different companies. The results demonstrate the plausibility of using the system to produce excellent returns on investment. For an initial investment of $10,000 dollars the system resulted in a one year profit of $340,000 dollars.
