Synthetic Reality: Synthetic market data generation at scale using agent based modeling
By Natraj Raman, Jochen L. Leidner, Krishnen Vytelingum and Geoffrey Horrell
Agent Based Modeling (ABM) offers advances over traditional model testing applications in the financial markets. In this paper we introduce the topic of Agent Based Modeling and illustrate its application in a number of scenarios.
- Learn about different models for simulating financial market dynamics and performing what-if scenario analysis
- Find out how models can replicate well-known statistical properties of the financial markets
- See the simulation results of different scenarios e.g. when asset prices drop suddenly
This project allowed us to tackle the technical challenges and begin a dialogue around this emerging field of synthetic data and ABM with the financial modeling community.
