What is a Block Trade? 

A block trade involves a particularly large number of securities transactions. These types of trades are negotiated privately. Because of their potential to have an outsized effect on stock prices, block trades are typically broken up into smaller transactions. Block trades may be the subject of insider trading since they are negotiated privately.
