The first ECN trading system was established by Instinet in 1969 to trade stocks. Stockbrokers used the ECN system to reduce transaction costs while enabling customers to bid and trade outside of traditional trading hours.
Now Nasdaq and the New York Stock Exchange both use the ECN system for trading. The Nasdaq uses the ECN system as Inet, and the New York Stock Exchange’s ECN system is Archipelago Exchange.
The first ECN trading system for foreign exchange transactions was established by Matchbook FX in 1999. Previously, transactions were conducted by telephone and between major banks (such as Chase Bank, Goldman Sachs, UBS, Deutsche Bank or Citibank).
At that time, all prices in the system were directly provided by Matchbook FX traders, customers, and banks. Buyers and sellers used the system to quote, bid, and match orders to form transactions.
