Speech Title: Using Deep Reinforcement Learning and Convolutional Neural Network to Construct the Intelligent Stock Trading System

Abstract: Financial market prediction is one of the hot topics of deep learning, but past research has rarely paid attention to the issue of label setting for market prediction. In order to improve this problem, this research uses Deep Reinforcement Learning (Deep Reinforcement Learning) combined with Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) to build a deep reinforcement learning model to simulate stock trading. In the trading method, the stocks are bought and sold at the daily closing price, and the transaction cost is considered, and the S&P 500 ETF transaction is simulated. This study trains the model agent to obtain a return on investment of 29~290% during a one-year period in 2020. Verify that deep reinforcement learning has certain development potential in stock market forecasting or program trading.
