Trading Floor

The floor where trading activities are conducted. Trading floors are found in the buildings of various exchanges, such as the New York Stock Exchange and the Chicago Board of Trade. These floors represent the area where traders complete the buying or selling of an asset.

The trading floor is also referred to as "the pit" of an exchange, due to the hectic nature of the area. However, with the advent of electronic trading platforms, many of the trading floors that once dominated market exchanges have started to disappear as trading has become more electronically based.

Trading floors can also be found in brokerages, investment banks and other companies involved in trading activities. In this case, it refers to the physical office location that houses the trading division, which can complete transactions over the internet or telephone.
