Batch Trading

Full Definition of Batch Trading

A method for transacting different security orders that involves the accumulation of orders and their simultaneous execution. An example is when a particular security may be experiencing a high level of trading volume, it can have its orders batched and executed at the same time when the desired price has been reached. Batch trading is more efficient for market makers as well as for specialists due to the fact that a large number of accumulated orders are able to be executed with fewer actual transactions.
