Algorithmic Trading, sometimes referred to as Robot Trading, is the use of electronic trading platforms for entering trading orders with an algorithm. They execute pre-programmed trading instructions whose variables may include timing, price, or quantity of the order. In many cases they initiate the order using a “robot”, without human intervention which helps to eliminate the risk of human error and increase the overall speed of the process.
Algorithmic Trading is helpful when quick decisions are imperative in market trading. In recent years, it has become very popular with investment banks, pension funds and mutual funds, as it has proven to be extremely profitable for some of Wall Streets biggest firms.
The main advantages of Algorithmic Trading include, the speed of order entry in to the market, controlling or minimizing human emotions, enforcing discipline in your trading, the ability to back test, the ability to obtain consistency and diversify your trading.
