The term “algorithmic trading” is a bit intimidating on the surface, but the definition itself is not overly complex. In simplest terms, algorithmic trading is the process of using computers to place and execute trades automatically within a given market at the direction of a pre-programmed software application. The key characteristic of any automated, method-based trading system is that the computer designated to conduct trading operations acts autonomously within the marketplace, independent of any real-time human intervention.
Benefits of Algorithmic Trading
Algorithmic Trading is the process of using computers programmed to follow a defined set of instructions for placing a trade in order to generate profits at a speed and frequency that is impossible for a human trader and to trade for you while you are not in front of your screen, this is perfect for part-time traders.
