In Genetic Algorithms andInvestment Strategies, he uniquely focuses on the most powerfulweapon of all, revealing how the speed, power, and flexibility ofGAs can help them consistently devise winning investmentstrategies. The only book to demonstrate how GAs can workeffectively in the world of finance, it first describes thebiological and historical bases of GAs as well as othercomputerized approaches such as neural networks and chaos theory.It goes on to compare their uses, advantages, and overallsuperiority of GAs. In subsequently presenting a basic optimizationproblem, Genetic Algorithms and Investment Strategies outlines theessential steps involved in using a GA and shows how it mimicsnature's evolutionary process by moving quickly toward anear-optimal solution. Introduced to advanced variations ofessential GA procedures, readers soon learn how GAs can be usedto:

From the Publisher:

Genetic algorithms hold the key to forecasting price movements and mastering market timing techniques. Supplies a range of market timing and investment strategies for speculators, hedgers, futures, options, stock and bond traders interested in switching in and out of various asset classes.

From the Inside Flap:

Genetic Algorithms and Investment Strategies More and more traders now rely on genetic algorithms, neural networks, chaos theory, and other computerized decision-making approaches to help them develop winning investment strategies. They recognize that the battle in today’s financial markets is increasingly being waged at computer speed, not human speed, and that anyone who fails to exploit these new tools may be headed for extinction. Written by the coauthor of the first published paper to link genetic algorithms and the world of finance, Richard Bauer’s Genetic Algorithms and Investment Strategies is, likewise, the first book to demonstrate the value of GAs as tools in the search for effective trading ideas. Recognizing the continued resistance of many traders and analysts to GAs, it shows how these approaches do not herald an age in which people will be supplanted by machines, revealing instead how they serve only to augment human thinking. In clear, nontechnical language, Genetic Algorithms and Investment Strategies describes the biological bases of GAs, neural nets, and chaos theory...their historical development...the current state of the methodology for each...and their uses, advantages, and limitations as decision-making tools in the world of finance, ultimately demonstrating the superiority of GAs over the other two methods, particularly in handling critical optimization problems. It then focuses exclusively on GAs, presenting simple problems to illustrate the basic steps involved in using a GA and describing—with the help of numerous tables and diagrams—how the GA mimics nature’s ruthlessly efficient evolutionary process and moves quickly and inexorably toward a near-optimal solution. Complete with a summary of available software programs, an extensive glossary of GA terms, and a bibliography covering GAs, neural nets, chaos theory, and market timing, Genetic Algorithms and Investment Strategies doesn’t offer a results-oriented, get-rich-quick scheme. Rather, it provides traders and investment analysts with a proven, strategic decision-making process they can use and modify in order to prevail in today’s fast-shifting financial marketplace.
