Python Machine Learning on Amazon stock prices

This Python code reads Amazon's historical stock prices from 2014 to 2019. I downloaded the CSV file from Yahoo Finance. The chart below shows how well this algorithm predicts stocks prices when compared to actual stock prices. The code was cobbled together from snippets at Analytics Vidhya and Medium.
