    Aims and Scope

    For the first time, the book offers ethnographic insights about embodied knowledge practices in the highly technologized world of financial trading. In the imposing technological shadow of computer screens, the study observes the gestural and emotional practices in communicating prices and decisions. The rhythm of the digital marketplace is a world of constant watching and listening, of gesticulation and shouting, of feeling and deciding.
