Curtain falls on Hong Kong Exchange's trading floor

Hong Kong Exchange's iconic trading floor will close its doors from today (27).
 
After more than 30 years, it's moving to electronic trading, joining a growing club after Tokyo, Singapore, and London.
 
In its final weeks, just a handful of traders have spent their days in an empty hall that accommodates more than 1,000.
 
The decline set in rapidly more than a decade ago once trading was allowed off the floor.
 
When Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing formed in 1986 from the consolidation of four local bourses, all trades were conducted on the floor.
