Since the sixties, debates have been born on the models, which determine the evolution of the stock prices. In this work we will focus on one of the best performances in the region of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), is Africa's third largest Bourse: Casablanca Stock Exchange (CSE), which had the “Index de la Bourse des Valeurs de Casablanca” (IGB) as an index. IGB was replaced in January 2002 by two indexes: MASI (Moroccan All Shares Index) comprises all listed shares, allows investors to follow all listed values and to have a long-term visibility. MADEX (Moroccan Most Active Shares Index) comprises most active shares listed continuously with variations closely linked to all the market serves as a reference for the listing of all funds invested in shares.Firstly, it aims at the investigation of stochastic model to show the variation of MASI index values, and, secondly, we will achieve a prediction interval of 95% of chance for Moroccan index future values. Here, the geometric Brownian motion (stochastic process without mean reversion propriety) is used to model the stochastic variation of MASI index values. In order to calculate models’ parameters daily close values of the Moroccan index from 02/01/2003 to 05/11/2019 can be taken from Casablanca Stock Exchange and, hence, stochastic models for MASI index variation is to be derived.
