The neural networks, AI applications, are effective prediction methods. Therefore, in the current research a prediction system was proposed using these neural networks. It studied the technical share indices, viewing price not only as a function of time, but also as a function depending on several indices among which were the opening and closing, top and bottom trading session prices or trading volume. The above technical indices of a number of Egyptian stock market shares during the period from 2007 to 2017, which can be used for training the proposed system, were collected and used as follows: The data were divided into two sets. The first one contained 67% of the total data and was used for training neural networks and the second contained 33% and was used for testing the proposed system. The training set was segmented into subsets used for training a number of neural networks. The output of such networks was used for training another network hierarchically. The system was, then, tested using the rest of the data.
