I致e heard about a couple of exchanges introducing 都ide-by-side trading in some of their products. What is that? 鉄ide-by-side trading is the simultaneous trading of a commodity or financial futures product electronically and in the trading pit during business hours. As more exchanges introduce electronic trading, many investors are wondering whether to shift their trading from the pits to the computerized systems. While the contract specifications for products traded in the electronic and open-outcry arenas are usually identical, there are key differences.

Open-outcry trading involves orders communicated to brokers in a pit via customer requests made to their brokerages via phone or computer. Customer bids and offers are matched between pit brokers, and trades are executed when prices are mutually acceptable. In electronic or screen-based trading, customers send buy/sell orders from their computers to an electronic marketplace offered by the exchange.
