Intelligent data analysis of the influence of COVID-19 on the stock market using Case Based Reasoning




Forecast, Prediction, Covid-19, Stock Markets, Case-Based Reasonig (CBR), Analogy Learning


Starting with the differences between forecasting and prediction and going deeper into prediction, a knowledge-based model is presented. The evolution of the stocks markets are analyzed, as well as how the epidemics and pandemics prior to the stock markets have affected them and how it is currently being affected by covid-19. The defined model is applied to a use case using Case-Based Reasoning (CBR): it makes an analogy between the 2008 crisis with the covid-19 crisis in 2020 to predict whether the stock markets will take more or less time to recover.
