Our project improves the Facebook Prophet model in predicting the S&P 500 index with external data including the monetary policies and decisions from the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC), profitability and financial decisions of S&P500 companies, etc. Our improved model not only reduces the Mean-Squared Error (MSE) but also forecasts the market crash and rebound during the covid-19 period.
