Crossing at Credit Suisse

Credit Suisse will launch an electronic crossing system for large options trades. With the crossing of large blocks at exchanges on the upswing, the broker sees potential. "All the exchanges are jumping in," Eugene Kearns, an executive in Credit Suisse's Advanced Execution Services group, said at the recent meeting of the Chicago chapter of the Security Traders Association.
