The Role of Technology in Futures Markets

Electronic trading has achieved much more than enabling the open-outcry traders of yesterday to do business in the comfort of their own home. Because it frees futures trading from the confines of a physical exchange, electronic trading enables futures exchanges to operate on a global scale, with 24/7 access to markets around the world.

Today’s electronic futures trading platforms are some of the most advanced technologies in the world of finance. The speed and constant activity they enable adds ever-greater liquidity to the markets – so the world’s economies can move more quickly, more decisively and more confidently.
