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.
