Reliable forecast of the price of natural resource commodity is of interest for a wide range of applications.This includes generating macroeconomic projections and in assessing macroeconomic risks.Various approaches have been introduced in developing the required forecasting models.In this paper, a forecasting model based on an optimized Least Squares Support Vector Machine is proposed.The determination of hyper-parameters is performed using a nature inspired algorithm, Artificial Bee Colony.The proposed forecasting model is realized is gold price forecasting.The undertaken experiments showed that the prediction accuracy and Mean Absolute Percentage Error produced by the proposed model is better compared on the one produced using Least Squares Support Vector Machine as an individual.
