An easy and enjoyable read – even for somebody who has been on a trading floor for over 20 years. I learned a lot reading it. It has the balance of expertise written in an easy style with real examples – a valuable book for market professionals and also participants. —
How the Trading Floor Really Works
Trading floors have always fascinated people, but few understand the role they play in the world of finance today. Given the recent financial crisis, it is more important than ever to understand not only what role banks play in financial markets, but why they take risk and how it all goes wrong. This book demystifies the trading floor and financial markets using simple examples, real words and lots of true anecdotes.
Foreword by Gillian Tett of the FT and best-selling author of Fool’s Gold.
