Stock price forecasting is an important issue for investors since extreme accuracy in forecasting can bring about high profits. Fuzzy Time Series (FTS) and Longest Common/Repeated Sub-sequence (LCS/LRS) are two important issues for forecasting prices... However, to the best of our knowledge, there are no significant studies using LCS/LRS to predict stock prices. It is impossible that prices stay exactly the same as historic prices. Therefore, this paper proposes a state-of-the-art method which combines FTS and LCS/LRS to predict stock prices. This method is based on the principle that history will repeat itself. It uses different interval lengths in FTS to fuzzify the prices, and LCS/LRS to look for the same pattern in the historical prices to predict future stock prices. In the experiment, we examine various intervals of fuzzy time sets in order to achieve high prediction accuracy. The proposed method outperforms traditional methods in terms of prediction accuracy and, furthermore, it is easy to implement. read more
