Leveraging Artificial Intelligence in Stock Market Manipulation Detection
Financial markets remain prone to fraud and different forms of manipulation whereby some market players deliberately interfere with the free and fair operation of the market. Market abuse damages market integrity and undermines investors’ confidence in financial markets. Protecting market participants from fraudulent practices and ensuring a fair and orderly market for all investors remain a significant challenge for financial regulators. This challenge is further exacerbated by high-frequency trading, high data volumes and cross-market linkages. This talk will explore the opportunities and challenges of using AI and bio-inspired techniques for early detection and identification of different forms of market manipulation.
