Traders are fascinating subjects for social analysis, not only because of the fast rise of their profession, but also because, through their work, we can see how markets create cultural as well as monetary values. This article examines the role and positions of traders in finance, discussing among other things the transformation of their activities when computerized trading became dominant, as well as their public perception.
