Abstract

Chronicles that the shift to electronic trading in financial and capital markets is likened to the ‘Big bang’. Pinpoints that both the UK and the USA (as a result of a mixture of changing regulations and new technology) securities markets began online basic trading in 1986, although Japan did this in early 1982. Concludes changes occurring in a switch to electronic trading, business‐to‐consumer and business‐to‐business, could appear daunting — but some sectors of the economy have been here before.
