Chittagong Stock Exchange was the first stock exchange in the country to introduce automated trading system on June 1998. The trading system at CSE was known as CHITTRA at that time. It connected major cities of Bangladesh enabling all members to trade nation wide simultaneously with ease and efficiency. CHITTRA provided a screen based, quote-driven trading facility. Investors were allowed to quote an expected price in their buy/sell orders. CHITTRA automatically matched the best prices.
