	%X This paper presents an adaptive framework for
modelling financial markets using equity risk premiums, risk free
rates and volatilities. The recorded economic factors are initially
used to train four adaptive filters for a certain limited period of time
in the past. Once the systems are trained, the adjusted coefficients
are used for modelling and prediction of an important financial
market index. Two different approaches based on least mean squares
(LMS) and recursive least squares (RLS) algorithms are investigated.
Performance analysis of each method in terms of the mean squared
error (MSE) is presented and the results are discussed. Computer
simulations carried out using recorded data show MSEs of 4% and
3.4% for the next month prediction using LMS and RLS adaptive
algorithms, respectively. In terms of twelve months prediction, RLS
method shows a better tendency estimation compared to the LMS
