    They all seem to have stock index futures. Is the difference like between NYSE and Nasdaq? What about in term of quoting, fee pricing, volume, speed etc?
  2. There are some big differences in products and how them present them. ICE is very cutting edge with some of the things they are doing. They use implication like no other exchange and this will change the market place. Implication adds to more granular price discover and opens up tremendous trading opportunities.
  3. Could you detail a bit on how cutting edge ICE's technology is? Seems their index products haven't become active yet.
  4. IntercontinentalExchange® (NYSE: ICE) operates the leading global, electronic marketplace for trading both futures and OTC energy contracts.

    CME is the largest futures exchange in the United States and also owns and operates the largest futures Clearing House in the world. CME products fall into five major areas: interest rates, equities, foreign exchange, agricultural commodities and alternative investments.

    The Chicago Board of Trade (CBOT), established in 1848, is a leading futures and options on futures exchange.

    do they have the same index futures? or some has e-mini, and some has dow futures?

    do they use specialists? do they provide real time quote?
  6. I never heard of ICE
