Block Brokers?

Postby content.pristine » Mon Mar 25, 2013 12:22 pm

Dear Priya,
Block Trades are high volume trades that take place through brokers.
Usually institutional investors buy and sell in block trades so as to minimized transaction costs and buy and sell at minimal market impact (without drastic change in market prices)
