Definition of Execution:

  1. The carrying out or putting into effect of a plan, order, or course of action.

  2. The carrying out of a sentence of death on a condemned person.

  3. Brokers are required by law to give investors the best execution possible. The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) requires brokers to report the quality of their executions on a stock by stock basis as well as notifying customers who did not have their orders routed for best execution. The cost of executing trades has significantly reduced due to the growth of online brokers. Many brokers offer their customers a commission rebate if they execute a certain amount of trades or dollar value per month. This is particularly important for short-term traders where execution costs need to be kept as low as possible.

  4. Completion of formalities or steps required to make an agreement or other document legally valid.

  5. Carrying out of a court judgment or order.

  6. Execution is the completion of a buy or sell order for a security. The execution of an order occurs when it gets filled, not when the investor places it. When the investor submits the trade, it is sent to a broker, who then determines the best way for it to be executed.
