Trading online demands time bandwidth and adequate knowledge. Online stock trading is a system that allows buy and selling of stocks through the Internet. This paper presents a development of an Agent-based Framework for stock market trading. The system allows the use of agents in stock trading on behalf of traders. The system includes creating investor’s agents which are: market maker agent, informed agent, uninformed agent and the hold agent. Initial capital are allocated to the investor’s agents, the agents now use the capital to trade on behalf of the investors and making decision to meet the user’s investment goals which include optimum return on investment. The key issues addressed include assembly and incorporating diverse information sources with trading agents, and providing decision-making for investor’s agent in the stock market using trading indicator for informed agent. The prototype of the system has been implemented and found to be very efficient in stock trading based on return on investment.
