Can Machine Learning Help

Portfolio Management?

Machine learning can help with most portfolio tasks like idea generation, alpha-factor design, asset allocation, weight optimization, position-sizing, and the testing of strategies. However, applying machine learning in portfolio management can limit the performance in a risk-return relationship. To complement this approach, we explore how machine learning techniques may be able to adjust the proportion between long and short positions and evaluate individual assets.

Trade Execution Optimization via Reinforcement Learning

The optimal trading execution problem is that a trader seeks to maximize the proceeds from trading a given quantity of shares of a financial asset over a fixed duration trading period, considering that trading impacts the future trajectory of prices. Owing to the complexity, however, traditional approaches for order execution are plagued by intractability under generalized conditions. Alternatively, deep Reinforcement Learning has previously been applied to the problem of optimal execution and has shown promise, both in simulated environments and on historical data.
