'Trading on the news' is a technique used by traders to justify buying or selling securities. News reports often spur short-term moves in the market, creating trading opportunities.

Announcements about earnings, product launches, changes in management, all are events that can cause a company's stock price to move up or down.

Digital news sources

Today, news travels through digital means. It reaches social networks at breakneck speed. News can spread virally from the originator to millions of people in a matter of minutes. If the news has material value, it is re-tweeted immediately.

Artificial Intelligence Investing at its best

Algorithmic Wall Street

As of 2009, Wikipedia states that computers who are using events to trigger trades, accounted for 60% of all US stock market trading volume.' In 2018, this phenomenon has ballooned to 85% of all equity trades.

Wall Street's automated strategies have become so pervasive that we can say that the market is about to become fully robotized.

Automated 'trading on the news' brings about a new world of opportunities, where investors will get a better 'bang for their buck' without the need for a traditional Investment Advisor. All they will really need is a brokerage account and access to their favorite auto-trading tool.
