We describe an exchange system for trading complex goods, such as used
cars or nonstandard financial securities. The system allows traders to
represent their buy and sell orders by multiple attributes, provide complex
price constraints, and specify preferences among acceptable trades. We
describe a technique for fast identification of most preferable matches
between buy and sell orders, which maximize trader satisfaction.
