Anyone know the reason seat prices have fallen so much? When the news of the new exchange hit the prices fell dramatically. I also heard rumors that they were bid up this summer to thwart a takeover atempt by ice. Iam going to buy a seat in the next 6 months, Its a strange market and I have no idea when to buy one. I think this new exchange has a chance to suceed if the banks involved force their traders to use it.
