abstract = "Although there is a plentiful literature on the use of
evolutionary methodologies for the trading of financial
assets, little attention has been paid to the issue of
efficient trade execution. Trade execution is concerned
with the actual mechanics of buying or selling the
desired amount of a financial instrument of interest.
This paper introduces the concept of trade execution
and outlines the limited prior work applying
evolutionary computing methods for this task.
Furthermore, we build an Agent-based Artificial Stock
Market and apply a Genetic Algorithm to evolve an
efficient trade execution strategy. Finally we suggest
a number of opportunities for future research.",
