  abstract =     "We cast financial trading as a symbolic regression
                 problem on the lagged time series, and test a state of
                 the art symbolic regression method on it. The system is
                 geometric semantic genetic programming, which achieves
                 good performance by converting the fitness landscape to
                 a cone landscape which can be searched by
                 hill-climbing. Two novel variants are introduced and
                 tested also, as well as a standard hill-climbing
                 genetic programming method. Baselines are provided by
                 buy-and-hold and ARIMA. Results are promising for the
                 novel methods, which produce smaller trees than the
                 existing geometric semantic method. Results are also
                 surprisingly good for standard genetic programming. New
                 insights into the behaviour of geometric semantic
                 genetic programming are also generated.",
