With the rise of online brokerages in the 1990s, anyone with computer and internet connection could execute trades in their portfolio without the assistance of a broker. This ‘new wave’ of trading and affordable, easy to access liquidity led to a surge in the number of ‘retail’ traders (individual investors who actively trade their own accounts).
