A Million a Minute is the inside story of the mysterious and wildly influential world of trading. In our interconnected global markets, traders have become the front-line, free-market warriors closest to the money, closest to the action. Their reactions to world events can topple governments and cause currencies to rise or plummet. They affect the prices we pay for the food we eat, the gasoline we use, even our homes and mortgages. Hillary Davis, a former portfolio manager, shows us who these people are, what motivates them, and how they came to be so powerful. Based on interviews with superstar traders and rising stars, A Million a Minute offers a context for understanding the challenges of today’s complex, lightning-fast trading environment, as well as a provocative vision of a virtual-reality trading future.
