Futures traders take clicking a price to generate an order on their PCs for granted these days, much less the instant delivery of every tick, order book data, and trade fills. How’s it all work? How did it all used to work?
In this episode we talk with Guy Scott of Trading Technologies about the early days of screen trading to the evolution of modern electronic trading, to what it takes to power the trading of hedge funds, trade desks, big banks, and the little guys, We’re covering professional volleyball, the early days of screen trading, trading volumes, the original order book view on trading screens, the evolution of electronic exchanges, Scottish rugby, optimal screen layouts, managing human error, the English countryside, international expansion, surveillance technology (the good kind!), and the future of Trading Technologies (the company) and trading technologies (the tech).
