  abstract =     "Trade execution is concerned with the actual mechanics
                 of buying or selling the desired amount of a financial
                 instrument. Investors wishing to execute large orders
                 face a tradeoff between market impact and opportunity
                 cost. Trade execution strategies are designed to
                 balance out these costs, thereby minimising total
                 trading cost. Despite the importance of optimising the
                 trade execution process, this is difficult to do in
                 practice due to the dynamic nature of markets and due
                 to our imperfect understanding of them. In this paper,
                 we adopt a novel approach, combining an evolutionary
                 methodology whereby we evolve high-quality trade
                 execution strategies, with an agent-based artificial
                 stock market, wherein the evolved strategies are
                 tested. The evolved strategies are found to outperform
                 a series of benchmark strategies and several avenues
                 are suggested for future work.",
