Trading Desk

A physical desk at an investment bank where one may buy or sell securities or derivatives. Generally speaking, each trading desk at an organization specializes in one type of security. For example, one may buy and sell stocks, other bonds, and so forth. Trading desks allow users to trade securities instantaneously, which can be important in arbitrage. A trading desk is also called a dealing desk.
