Abstract:

Nigerian stock prices data is modelled by Box-Jenkins approach and the use of automatic model selection criteria: Akaike Information criterion (AIC), Schwarz Information Criterion (SIC), R2. It is inferred that the most adequate model is autoregressive integrated moving average of orders 2, 1 and 3(ARIMA (2 ,1 ,3)). Forecasts are obtained on the basis of the model.

Key Words: Stock prices, ARIMA modelling, AIC, SIC, Nigeria.
