    In recent years, computer has become powerful tool for prediction of economical and financial variables. Different techniques of topics related to artificial intelligence, machine learning, and expert systems extended their place in the economic and financial issues that among these issues can refer to techniques of artificial neural networks, neural networks and fuzzy neural networks and Recurrent Neural Networks. In this paper, by using a hybrid model of multi-layer Perceptron artificial neural network and Imperialist competitive algorithm has been paid and present a method to predict stock price. The results of this implementation indicate a relatively high capacity hybrid model of artificial neural networks and Imperialist competitive algorithm to predict the stock market price of the Tehran Stock Exchange.
