Financial trading aims to build profitable strategies to make wise investment decisions in the financial market. It has attracted interests in the machine learning community for a long time. This paper proposes to trade financial assets automatically using feature preprocessing skills and Recurrent Reinforcement Learning (RRL) algorithm. The strategy starts from technical indicators extracted from assets’ market information. Then these technical indicators are preprocessed by Principal…

Making Financial Trading by Recurrent Reinforcement Learning
A financial trading system whose strategy is developed by means of an artificial neural network approach based on a recurrent reinforcement learning algorithm is proposed, which takes into account as measure of profitability the reciprocal of the returns weighted direction symmetry index instead of the wide-spread Sharpe ratio.
An Adaptive Financial Trading System Using Deep Reinforcement Learning With Candlestick Decomposing Features
Experimental results show that the proposed method has higher robustness and prediction accuracy than other methods which are based on price, fuzzified price and K-lines for features learning.
Reinforcement Learning for Trading
This work extends previous work to compare Q-Learning to the authors' Recurrent Reinforcement Learning (RRL) algorithm and provides new simulation results that demonstrate the presence of predictability in the monthly S&P 500 Stock Index for the 25 year period 1970 through 1994, as well as a sensitivity analysis that provides economic insight into the trader's structure.
An automated FX trading system using adaptive reinforcement learning
This paper introduces adaptive reinforcement learning (ARL) as the basis for a fully automated trading system application. The system is designed to trade foreign exchange (FX) markets and relies on
Combining Principal Component Analysis, Discrete Wavelet Transform and XGBoost to trade in the financial markets
This system is capable of outperforming the Buy and Hold (B&H) strategy in three of the five analyzed financial markets, achieving an average rate of return of 49.26% in the portfolio, while the B&H achieves on average 32.41%.
Reinforcement Learning for Trading Systems and Portfolios
This work extends previous work to compare Q-Learning to a reinforcement learning technique based on real-time recurrent learning (RTRL) that maximizes immediate reward and achieves a simulated out-of-sample profit of over 4000% for this period, compared to the return for a buy and hold strategy.
Performance functions and reinforcement learning for trading systems and portfolios
We propose to train trading systems and portfolios by optimizing objective functions that directly measure trading and investment performance. Rather than basing a trading system on forecasts or
Threshold Recurrent Reinforcement Learning Model for Automated Trading
It is found that the TRRL produces better trading strategies in all the cases studied, and it is more apt at finding structure in non-linear financial time series than the standard RRL.

This study investigates high frequency currency trading with neural networks trained via recurrent reinforcement learning (RRL) and finds that the single layer network outperforms the two layer network in this application.
Learning to trade via direct reinforcement
It is demonstrated how direct reinforcement can be used to optimize risk-adjusted investment returns (including the differential Sharpe ratio), while accounting for the effects of transaction costs.
