Cross trade

A cross trade occurs when buy and sell orders from the same counterparty are matched by the trading mechanism of an electronic exchange. While this can occur inadvertently due to price moves and stale orders, it is usually banned by market rules and viewed by regulators and surveillance watchdogs as an example of uneconomic trading.
