A trader on the desk who can code

This is what I’m talking about.

The cover story of Advanced Trading Magazine for June 2013 is titled “Key Skills for Success” and describes how the trading job description has changed over the last few years.  Traders are increasingly expected to know a bit more about automated systems.  That means that programmers who trade and traders who program are in high demand.

From the article: “In the future, you might want a trader on the desk who knows how to code and program.”

The article is spot on, and very timely for the programmer/trader’s line of work.
