An employee of an exchange that judges between disputes on the trading floor. For example, if two traders disagree on the terms of a trade to which they previously agreed, they may call upon a floor official to settle the dispute. It is important to note that floor officials do not decide points of trading law; they merely arbitrate disputes.
