Last week of trading on KCBT floor


The KCBT trading pits will close permanently this upcoming Friday and put an end to the trading floor which has existed in some form or another in Kansas City since 1856.  This exchange holds a lot of memories for me as I started there as a clerk literally 15 years ago to the date it's shutting down and for sure I'm going be there for the final bell.   Hopefully the Peanut stocked enough booze for the crowd afterwards.

Pretty amazing that with KCBT closing there's only two open outcry futures trading floors left in the world, in Chicago and New York (I don't consider the LME to be a proper one).
