Machine learning technology has proved to be an asset in the quest for better risk management. Through real-time predictive analysis of vast amounts of data, machine learning technology can detect rogue investors working in unison across multiple accounts. Machine learning makes trading easier for both large and small investors by automating functions in computer-aided trading services that allow investors to have an order placed when a stock reaches a predetermined price, and to sell when that price drops below a certain limit.

The other advantages of automated support systems include providing an automated interface helping customers make better product selections, directing them to the correct solution and making the process less cumbersome by reducing the overall interaction period.
