The paper attemps to forecast the future trend of Vietnam index (VN-index) by using long-short term memory (LSTM) networks. In particular, an LSTM-based neural network is employed to study the temporal dependence in time-series data of past and present VN index values. Empirical forecasting results show that LSTM-based stock trend prediction offers an accuracy of about 60% which outperforms moving-average-based prediction.
