Direct Access Trading - DAT

A system that allows a client to trade directly with another client, a market maker on Nasdaq, or a specialist on the floor of an exchange without broker interference.

DAT is the preferred trading system for day traders, where success is dependent upon speed of execution. For the average investor, DAT is not necessary.
