Smart order routing involves the ability for buy- and sell-side firms to achieve best execution of trades while minimizing market impact. It was promoted in the U.S. as a technological answer to increasingly fragmented markets,[1] to help firms search for hidden liquidity and find opportunities in dark pools, and to use algorithms to get the best results without moving the market.
