Algorithmic Trading Research Group

AlgoTr research group was established in 2018 at Institute of Applied Mathematics, Middle East Technical University with the objective of enhancing multidisciplinary research focusing on financial markets, quantitative modelling and financial risk management. We are working on constructing mini-modules to solve different problems in quantitative finance by using tools from probability, stochastic analysis, optimization, statistics and finance. These mini-modules will be united all-in-one to construct a real-time algorithmic trading prototype.

Specific areas of research includes:

  • Machine Learning Algorithms
  • Algorithmic and High Frequency Trading
  • Risk Management
  • Monte Carlo Methods
