Whether an entity seeks to create trading algorithms or mitigate risk, predicting trade volume is an important task, but one that comes with a number challenges—one of which is the sheer size of the data. Still, companies seek meaningful insight that can be used to forecast price volatility using trade volume, as well as understanding of whether trade volume versus price volatility relationships support theories regarding market agents such as speculators and hedgers. Focusing on futures trading that relies on Apache Spark for processing the large amount data, Tobi Bosede considers the use of penalized regression splines for trade volume prediction and the relationship between price volatility and trade volume.
