There are two types of analysis possible for prediction, technical and fundamental. In this paper both technical and fundamental analysis are considered. Technical analysis is done using historical data of stock prices by applying machine learning and fundamental analysis is done using social media data by applying sentiment analysis. Social media data has high impact today than ever, it can aide in predicting the trend of the stock market. The method involves collecting news and social media data and extracting sentiments expressed by individual. Then the correlation between the sentiments and the stock values is analyzed.

It can be shown that this method is able to predict the sentiment and the stock performance and its recent news and social data are also closely correlated
