Algorithms play an important part in finance. Financial markets have transformed from human-driven systems to predominantly computer driven. This transformation has laid the foundation for a new breed of trader; the algorithm. Algorithms are used for forecasting, decision making and trading in financial markets. Algorithmic trading is a hot topic in finance as over 70% of trades by volume is generated by trading programs. Algorithms are also used to analyse data for detecting changes in the market. Such analysis are useful to traders and fund managers who may want to detect trading opportunities and manage risk. Analysis is also important to regulators who may want to build early warning systems to protect the economy.
This Special Issue aims to attract submissions that report state-of-the-art research in algorithms in computational finance. The scope of this Special Issue is broad. We welcome submission in, but not limited to, the following topics:
- Forecasting algorithms
- Trading algorithms
- Portfolio optimisation algorithms
- Algorithms for analysing financial data
- Algorithms for market analysis, e.g., for early warning systems
- Machine learning applications in finance

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Algorithms is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
