Learn more about Algorithmic Trading

Algorithmic trading is the practice of using programmed computers for automatically trading stocks at superhuman speeds. Trading algorithms respond to variables like time, volume, and price, and remove human emotion from the trading process. This makes markets more liquid and trading more systematic and potentially more profitable.
