Telephone Booth

Informal; a cubicle containing a telephone on the New York Stock Exchange. Member firms use these telephones to take orders for trade, which are then executed on the trading floor. Members then use the telephone booth to communicate the trade back to a client. With the advent of Blackberries and other personal digital devices, some members have begun using these instead of the telephone booths.

telephone booth

One of several telephone-containing cubicles located around the perimeter of the trading floor of the New York Stock Exchange. Telephones in these booths are used by member firms to receive orders that are to be executed on the floor.
