Cantor Fitzgerald Readies Screens for Start of Electronic Futures Trading.
"With this new screen format in place, real-time prices on U.S. Treasury futures contracts will instantly be available to all customers of the CFFE," said Debra Walton, managing director. "This will help to ensure a highly liquid market for CFFE contracts from day one."
"Cantor Fitzgerald's U.S. Treasury cash customers wishing to trade U.S. Treasury futures on the CFFE will easily and conveniently see cash and futures prices side by side on the screens. They will be able to execute cash and futures trades with a single phone call," added Stuart Fraser, executive managing director of Cantor Fitzgerald.
Earlier this year the Board of Trade of the City of New York, applied to the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) for approval to use the Cantor Fitzgerald electronic trading platform to start a new electronic futures exchange, the CFFE, to initially trade U.S. Treasury futures. This week, the CFFE announced that, subject to CFTC approval, it will commence trading by Tuesday, September 8, 1998.
