A KADS based requirement analysis for the management of stock trading portfolios is presented. This provides a theoretical foundation for a stock trading system. This system is designed around portfolio management tasks that include eliciting user profiles, collecting information on the user's portfolio position, monitoring the environment on behalf of the user, and making decision suggestions to meet the user's investment goals. The requirement analysis defines a framework for a Multi-Agent System for Stock Trading (MASST). Experiments in task decomposition and agent interaction using a partially implemented system are described.
