Post -- On the New York Stock Exchange a post is a standard
or pillar rising from the floor to mark the place where a
particular stock is dealt in. The New York Central post, for
instance, is where New York Central & Hudson River Railroad
stock is dealt in. At most posts two or more stocks are
dealt in as there are not enough posts to allow one for each
stock dealt in on the exchange.
