Booth

Informal; a cubicle on the New York Stock Exchange. Member firms use booths to take orders for trade, which are then executed on the trading floor. Members then use the booths 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 booths. See also: Telephone booth.
