Dress Like a Local
The wild blur of the trading jackets worn by the thousands of traders and runners circulating the crowded exchange floor has become one of the most familiar images of financial markets. Exchange rules required all floor personal to wear them, and colorful jackets provide an easy way to distinguish “locals” across a large pit.
Our exclusive, personalized, fully-equipped trading jacket features hand-stitched custom patches and was created by the same company which has made the trading jackets found on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, Chicago Board of Trade and the New York Mercantile Exchange for over 35 years.
It’s shipped with a stack of 25 authentic personalized trading cards. Our two-sided, customized cards are manufactured by the Chicago-based firm that has been providing cards to trading floors since 1944.
The jacket and cards also come with a vintage copy of The New Gatsbys, Bob Tamarkin’s definitive chronicle of the mavericks who epitomized the 1980’s heyday of floor-traded commodities. This personal and lovingly detailed account of larger-than-life renegade capitalists ranks among the most vivid books on speculation ever written.
