Electronic trade matching
||It has been suggested that this article be merged into Alternative Trading Systems. (Discuss) Proposed since April 2012.|
Electronic trade matching is a process whereby a computer system matches buy and sell orders for a security on a stock market or commodities market. Electronic trade matching was introduced in the early 1990s in the United States to supplement open outcry trading. In modern trading, the trade matching system is part of a larger electronic trading system which also allows order entry at the user level and order execution at the exchange level.
