  abstract =     "Numerous sophisticated algorithms exist for
                 discovering reoccurring patterns in financial time
                 series. However, the most accurate techniques available
                 produce opaque models, from which it is impossible to
                 discern the rationale behind trading decisions. It is
                 therefore desirable to sacrifice some degree of
                 accuracy for transparency. One fairly recent
                 evolutionary computational technology that creates
                 transparent models, using a user-specified grammar, is
                 grammatical evolution (GE). In this paper, we explore
                 the possibility of evolving transparent entry- and exit
                 trading strategies for the E-mini S&P 500 index futures
                 market in a high-frequency trading environment using
                 grammatical evolution. We compare the performance of
                 models incorporating risk into their calculations with
                 models that do not. Our empirical results suggest that
                 profitable, risk-averse, transparent trading strategies
                 for the E-mini S&P 500 can be obtained using
                 grammatical evolution together with technical
