dark trading


A colloquial term for buying and selling stocks in a manner that does not significantly affect the stock market. Primarily, this means trading within pools set up by investment banks, which allow even a large volume of trading to occur without affecting the market. Dark trading is thought to comprise at least 10% market share, and also has somewhat of a negative connotation.
