This button advertised the 1998 launch of Globex2, the second generation of a computerized trading platform, to honor the Chicago Mercantile Exchange's technological advances in trading and products.
This button helps to document the recent history of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, one of the city's most important financial institutions. Founded in 1898 as the Chicago Butter and Egg Board, the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) revolutionized trading with innovative products and systems. In 1992, the CME adopted Globex, an electronic trading platform that allows traders to buy and sell contracts using computers. After the establishment of this computerized trading platform, buttons like this one honored and advertised the importance of computer trading years later.
