Informationless trades

Trades that are the result of either a reallocation of wealth or an implementation of an investment strategy that acts only on existing information. That is, an investor might sell a large block of stock -- not because they have information that leads them to think the stock will fall in value -- but because they might need the cash for some other investment.
