Re: [vox-tech] OMS

I'm a little familiar with OMS's, having worked for Wall St. companies 
for a number of years.  But I've never worked on one directly, or 
studied them extensively, so I couldn't recommend much.  Best I could 
offer would be some search terms to use at Google or Amazon:  OMS, 
"order matching system", "trade blotter"/"trading blotter", "matching 
engine", ECN (http://www.investopedia.com/terms/e/ecn.asp), etc.
