Financial markets never sleep. The trade in financial instruments has long been a global marketplace, operating round the clock.
But increasingly, market continuity is maintained not only by human intervention, but also by algorithmic tools; the world of finance deals with statistical data and quantitative figures that make it a perfect area for machine learning (ML). As such, financial services benefit a lot from deploying “intelligent” computer systems.
In addition, the trading world requires fast and sometimes immediate actions. Speed is vital for a trader to become a competent player in the market. Machine learning algorithms can accelerate data processing and provide a solution for managing vast amounts of data. Also, a machine learning system can easily spot complex patterns; if a substantial amount of past data is properly recorded and analyzed, then a model can be built to predict future events (at some confidence).
