Gold Prediction

Part — III of Gold Prediction Series. Step by step guide to predict a crash in Gold prices using Classification with PyCaret

Gold Price Movement

In this part, we will try to predict if there would be a ‘sharp fall’ or ‘crash’ in Gold Prices over next 22-Day period. We would be using a classification technique for this experiment. We will also learn how to use the trained model to make a prediction on new data every day. The steps for this exercise would be:

  1. Import and shape…
