"Squawk box" is the term for an intercom speaker often used on brokers' trading desks in investment banks and stock brokerages. It allows a firm's analysts and traders to communicate with the firm's brokers.

Brokers listen to the squawk box to hear information about analyst recommendations, market events and block trades. This keeps the brokers informed and lets the firm guide the brokers' trading.[1]
