In financials markets with liquid securities, any small advantage can be extremely valuable. Aida Mehonic explains how ASI Data Science, one of the most respected data science companies in the UK, has trained a deep neural net on historical prices of liquid financial contracts. The neural net has already outperformed comparable strategies based on expert systems. Aida shares ASI’s findings in more detail and discusses alternative implementations and potential next steps. This exciting research is ongoing and the full extent of results is yet to be known.
