automated screen trading


automated screen trading
= AST
Electronic dealing in securities using visual-display units to display prices and the associated computer equipment to enter, match, and execute deals. The system does away with the need for face-to-face trading on a formal stock-exchange floor, and even dispenses with telephone dealing. It potentially reduces or eliminates paperwork.
