Meet the Young Trader/Blogger Who is Preserving the Dying Language of Hand Signals
On B1 today, I profile Ryan Carlson, a trader who started snapping photos and blogging once he left the old-school trading pits.
To report this story, I journeyed to Chicago and would be remiss if I didn’t think my family, friends and of course the WSJ Chicago bureau for their hospitality. (And pie!) Gawsh, people there are just, nice.
In the past, I’ve written about traders who worked as restaurant hosts, the slowdown on the New York Stock Exchange, a trader who runs a Mister Softee truck and some former Merrill Lynch guys who went into yo-yos.
Don’t miss the neat slideshow of Ryan doing his signals! Edutainment!
