  abstract =     "Recently, a form of memory usage was introduced for
                 genetic programming (GP) called {"}soft memory.{"}
                 Rather than have a new value completely overwrite the
                 old value in a register, soft memory combines the new
                 and old register values. This work examines the
                 performance of a soft memory linear GP and
                 developmental GP implementation for stock trading. Soft
                 memory is known to more slowly adapt solutions compared
                 to traditional GP. Thus, it was expected to perform
                 well on stock data which typically exhibit local
                 turbulence in combination with an overall longer term
                 trend. While soft memory and standard memory were both
                 found to provide similar impressive accuracy in buys
                 that produced profit and sells that prevented losses,
                 the softer memory settings traded more actively. The
                 trading of the softer memory systems produced less
                 substantial cumulative gains than traditional memory
                 settings for the stocks tested with climbing share
                 price trends. However, the trading activity of the
                 softer memory settings had moderate benefits in terms
                 of cumulative profit compared to buy-and-hold strategy
                 for share price trends involving a drop in prices
                 followed later by gains.",
