An often-heard question in any discussion of Machine Learning (ML) tools is maybe most obvious one: “So, how can we use them?”

Let’s look at risk management at the trading desk, for example. If you want to mitigate risk, you need to be able to identify it in advance—say, to insure your traders aren’t conducting out-of-market transactions or placing fictitious orders. The latest issue of the New Machinist Journal by Dr. Jimmie Lenz (available by clicking here) explains how. Trade Desk Surveillance is just one way that Machine Learning tools can help monitor a variety of activities that can cause grief for those tasked with risk management.
