Automated Stock Trading

Full Definition of Automated Stock Trading

Investor trading of securities, usually through a computer, without direct help from an investment specialist or broker.

Fully automated trading has been limited to institutional and professional investors; however, brokerage firms are increasingly providing some automation for their clients. Also called computerized investing.
