Original Article


How to deeply process market data sources and build systems to process accurate market impact analysis is an attractive problem. In this paper, we build up a system that exploits deep learning architecture to improve feature representations, and adopt state-of-the-art supervised learning algorithm—extreme learning machine—to predict market impacts. We empirically evaluate the performance of the system by comparing different configurations of representation learning and classification algorithms, and conduct experiments on the intraday tick-by-tick price data and corresponding commercial news archives of stocks in Hong Kong Stock Exchange. From the results, we find that in order to make system achieve good performance, both the representation learning and the classification algorithm play important roles, and comparing with various benchmark configurations of the system, deep learned feature representation together with extreme learning machine can give the highest market impact prediction accuracy.
