Application of Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) in Algorithmic Trading and Aggregation of Low-Alpha Strategies

Machine learning is attracting a lot of attention recently due to the promising capabilities of adapting, learning and even self-teaching algorithms. Application of machine learning in algorithmic trading offers a variety of opportunities to extract greater alpha and improve order execution. In this session, I am going to present the application of Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) in algorithmic trading and share insights on aggregation of strategies.I would highlight the key functions of a strategy aggregator; categorisation of strategies, classification of market behaviour and application of ensemble learning. I would then briefly discuss about the design and development of controls for the aggregator framework that allows ease in monitoring and optimisation of the solution.
