Introduction

Trading is perhaps the most prominent and complex aspect of the financial services industry, more so than lending, deposits and advisory services. It is also safe to assume that readers agree that the terminology used in trading is outside the diction that they are familiar with. Thus, it is essential to have an appreciation of the jargon used in trading and exchanges.

Movies such as Wall Street and Trading Places starring Michael Douglas and Eddie Murphy contain scenes of trading in stocks and commodities respectively, and in these scenes a lot of the terminology that is still relevant to exchange trading in more recent times was used. It is advisable for readers to pick up copies of these movies and pay attention to the scenes specific to trading.
