Machine Learning & AI in Quantitative Finance Conference 2018 - NYC

March 01, 2018

Peter Hafez will give a session on Machine Learning & Event Detection for Trading Energy Futures at this RavenPack-sponsored event.

Machine Learning & Event Detection for Trading Energy Futures

The emergence of big data in finance has had a major impact on equities trading. However, other asset classes have seen less of an impact, since fewer alternative data sets are available to support these. In recent years this has changed with the proliferation of various social media sources and with the development of more advanced knowledge graphs that support a global macro theme.

During this talk Peter Hafez will show how RavenPack Analytics (RPA) can be used to uncover profitable trading signals for commodities based on news events detected across thousands of sources. In particular, he utilizes ten well-known machine learning algorithms to predict next day returns across a broad energy commodity basket.
