Current Issues in Economics and Finance, 2000, issue oct
Recent regulatory and technological changes have spurred the development of automated trading systems known as ECNs, or electronic communications networks.

While some critics have questioned the effects of the ECNs on market integration, it is clear that the networks are poised to play an increasingly important role in the new electronic environment.
