The traditional paradigm of applying nonlinear machine learning techniques to algorithmic trading strategies typically suffers massive data snooping bias. On the other hand, linear techniques, inspired and constrained by in-depth domain knowledge, have proven to be valuable. This presentation describes the application of the Kalman filter, a quintessentially linear technique, in two different ways to algorithmic trading.
