By David Lutz-Baker, Associated PressSTOCKTON, California (AP) A computer programmer is a new breed of stockbroker, but not everyone’s thrilled with the technology that powers the stock market.
More than 20 years ago, computer programmer Steve Tappo, an electrical engineer from California, developed a new kind of stock trading system that allows people to buy or sell stocks on the computer in a matter of seconds.
Tappo’s system works like this: People send in their trades and he creates a record of what they’ve put in and where they put it.
He calls it a “computer stock exchange.”
The stock market was born in the 1960s when people started selling their cars and buying houses to pay for college.
People began to buy stocks for their retirement.
Today, the stockmarket is more than $7 trillion in value and is up more than 40% this year.
It’s the most traded stock market in the world.
The technology that Tappos computer trading system relies on has come a long way from its days of selling computers and tape recorders.
Nowadays, computers are used to do much more than simply record stock trades.
They also are used for research, buying and selling and, of course, trading.

But computer stocks aren’t the only technology used in the stock exchange.
A new generation of computer traders, many of whom are women, are using the technology to make trading more efficient.
One of those women is a software engineer in California named Linda Waddell.
She’s now a professor at the University of Southern California and the founder of the computer trading firm Waddells.com.
Waddell has seen her stock market go up.
Her company makes stock trading software that works like a computer stock exchange for the stock exchanges of other countries.
She says the software makes trading faster and easier than ever.
In just a few short years, Waddels computer trading software has made trading much more efficient than it was five or 10 years ago.
Waddells stock trading program makes trading in stock trading a lot easier and also has many other benefits.
First, the software lets traders buy and hold stocks in their own account.
It doesn’t require a bank account.
Waddolls software also lets them sell stocks at any time and sell them on a short term basis.
Second, Wads software lets them do it all on the spot.
That means no more going through a salesperson and having to call them or get their permission.
And it means you don’t have to wait for the trades to settle before trading.
Third, Wadells computer trading program allows stock traders to buy stock on their own or with other people.
This lets people buy and own stocks for a fraction of the price of the company’s market price.
And if they buy and have stock, they can use it for a period of time without having to worry about it going to the market.
Fourth, it allows stock buyers to trade stocks at a very low price.
Wads computer trading programs offer the best prices in the market, which is why it has seen the biggest increase in stock prices in decades.
Wadels stock trading programs allow people to trade stock at a much lower price than other stocks, which means that they can sell stock for less money than they would if they bought it on their account.
Wadells stock market trading software is currently available for sale online at WadsStockMarket.com and at several online brokerages.
Some brokers offer their stock trading service at a discount.
WADells stock trades are $7.50 a share, about one-third lower than the market price of Wads stock.
Another broker, Capital Market, offers Wads trading software for $2.50.
Capital Market has about 400,000 stock traders in the U.S. with access to its software, and it’s offering the software for free.
