US Treasuries are trading electronically, but we still need bond traders

I recently spoke with Bloomberg TV about a recent Greenwich Associates research report that examined the growth in electronic trading of US Treasuries by US investors. The US Treasury market is an obvious one for electronification – the products are standard, liquid and the number of market participants is large. But relationships still matter, and so don’t expect the e-trading growth to leave all of the traders looking for jobs.
