GES 與 IEEE (HK) CI Chapter 合辦 「第一屆計量金融程式交易擂台」頒獎典禮圓滿結束

香港金融交易平台供應商Global eSolutions (HK) Limited (“GES”) 與電機暨電子工程師學會計算智能協會(香港分會)(“IEEE (HK) CI Chapter”) 合辦的「第一屆計量金融程式交易擂台」(“比賽”) 頒獎典禮於2017826香港大學周亦卿樓Lecture Theatre A 順利舉行當天除了進行頒獎儀式外,主辦單位也邀請了多位嘉賓演講,包括英國艾塞克斯大學(University of Essex)計算機科學及電子工程學院教授 Edward Tsang GES 資深量化工程師蘇劍平先生,分享其於量化金融及程式交易方面的研究及心得。是次頒獎禮獲得大專學界廣泛支持,各方精英共襄盛舉,盛況空前。

GES IEEE (HK) CI Chapter 今年首辦「第一屆計量金融程式交易擂台」,邀請來自香港不同大學的學生及研究生參賽,藉此提升本地學術界對程式交易的興趣及研發交易策略的技術。比賽反應熱烈,吸引多達35來自不同大專院校的隊伍參賽,參賽者超過60名。是次得獎的隊伍來自不同學系,包括電機電子工程系、計算機科學系及計算機工程系。當天一共頒發了9個獎項,得獎者包括來自以下院校的學士生及研究生﹙排名不分先後﹚:香港大學電機電子工程系、香港大學計算機科學系、香港浸會大學計算機科學系及香港科技大學電子及計算機工程系。

IEEE (HK) CI Chapter 主席譚偉略博士於頒獎典禮致辭時表示︰「在電機暨電子工程師學會計算智能協會(香港分會)(IEEE (HK) CI Chapter) 執行委員會的鼎力支持下,『第一屆計量金融程式交易擂台』得以成功舉辦,並取得參賽者的熱烈反應。是次比賽絕對是大專學界最有意義的投資比賽之一,同學們在學期間可以透過比賽實踐編寫交易策略的技巧及以真實市場數據進行模擬交易,增加學術理論與實踐的關係。」

GES 董事鍾就根先生表示:「香港雖然是國際金融中心,但程式交易、人工智能等創新科技於金融業之應用相對歐美資本市場相對落後。程式交易的優點在於自動化交易,使投資行為趨於理性,降低人為交易的不理性決策,透過電腦把預先設定的交易策略,指定時間,價格與成交量自動化地執行。作為是次比賽的模擬交易平台,GES Auton 是一個多元資產交易平台,支援外匯、貴金屬、差價合約、證券、期貨及期權。其內置的程式交易引擎讓投資者可於交易平台上使用現有的或自行編寫交易策略,同時可透過歷史數據進行回溯測試、以及透過真實市場數據進行未來測試,從而建立最適合自己,獨一無二的交易策略。」

Ceremony of “First Computational Finance Competition” Jointly Organized by the GES and IEEE (HK) CI Chapter Ended with a Great Success

The Award Presentation Ceremony (the “Ceremony”) of the First Computational Finance Competition (the “Competition”) jointly organized by Hong Kong based Global eSolutions (HK) Limited (“GES”), a leading financial trading platform provider, and the IEEE (Hong Kong) Computational Intelligence Chapter (IEEE (HK) CI Chapter) successfully took place on 26 August, 2017 at the Lecture Theatre A, Chow Yei Ching Building, the University of Hong Kong. Apart from the award presentation, the organizer invited several guests to deliver a speech, including Professor Edward P.K. Tsang, the School of Computer Science & Electronic Engineering, University of Essex and Mr. Ken So, Senior Quantitative Developer of GES, who shared their research and insights on computational finance and algo trading. Eminent figures in the academic sector and notable guests supported the event and exchanged the ideas of computation finance and algo trading.

Since the Competition was held by GES and IEEE (HK) CI Chapter for the first time this year, it aims to foster the pursuit of algo trading among university students. The Competition has received an overwhelming response of entries, with more than 60 participants in 35 teams. Awarded teams in the Ceremony come from various academic departments, ranging from Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Computer Science and Computer Engineering. A total of 9 awards were presented, the winners include both undergraduate and postgraduate from (name listed in no particular order) The Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, the University of Hong Kong; The Department of Computer Science, the University of Hong Kong; The Department of Computer Science, Hong Kong Baptist University; and The Department of Electronic & Computer Engineering, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology.

At the Ceremony, Dr. Vincent Tam, Chairman of IEEE (HK) CI Chapter, said, “Thanks to the keen supports of the Executive Committee members of the IEEE (HK) CI Chapter, and the Computational Finance and Economics Technical Committee (CFETC) of the Computational Intelligence Society (CIS), the Competition has been successfully launched and has received overwhelming response so far. The Competition is certainly one of the most meaningful investment competitions in the academic sector, allowing students to put investment theories into practice and gain the valuable experience of trading simulation in the real investment world.”

Mr. Ken Chung, Director of GES, said, “Although Hong Kong is known to be an international financial hub, its development and application of innovative technology such as algo trading and artificial intelligence in the financial industry still falls behind the capital markets in Europe and the United States. One significant advantage of algo trading is automation, which leads to a relatively rational trading behavior. Any pre-setting trading strategies can be automatically executed in specified time, price and trading volume through computer, avoiding irrational decisions made by manual trading. Auton serves as a virtual trading platform in this Competition and is a truly multi-asset platform which supports FX, Bullion, CFDs, Equities, Futures and Stock Options. Its built-in algo trading kit allows traders to deploy existing trading strategies or script their own one in the platform. By allowing algo backtesting and forward-testing with historical data and live data respectively, Auton helps traders to develop the unique trading strategy that will work best for them.

About the First Computational Finance Competition
This first Computational Finance Competition was organized by GES and IEEE (Hong Kong) Computational Intelligence Chapter (“IEEE (HK) CI Chapter”), which invited undergraduates and postgraduates students from renowned universities in Hong Kong to foster the pursuit of algo trading among university students in Hong Kong. It was initiated with a vision to promote the use of Computational Intelligence in the area of finance, identify algo trading talents at top universities and provide top performers with potential career opportunities.
