Machine Learning Approach to Mean Reversion Trading
报告人： Tim Leung (University of Washington)
地点：Zoom Meeting(878 7426 3432)
We discuss a practical machine learning approach to construct portfolios with mean-reverting price dynamics. Our objectives are threefold: (1) design a portfolio that is well-represented by a mean-reverting process with parameters estimated by maximum likelihood, (2) select portfolios with desirable characteristics, such as high mean reversion, and (3) build a parsimonious portfolio, i.e. find a small subset from a larger collection of assets for long/short positions. Our data-driven method combines statistical learning and optimization. We present a specialized projected gradient algorithm to solve the constrained non-convex problem embedded in the trading problem. Numerical examples using empirical price data are provided.
