David M. Weiss, currently vice president global operations at Goldman, Sachs & Co., has authored an overview of the duties and operations of the employees at securities firms known as traders. This is not a book about what these professional market participants use in their decision process to determine market direction; rather, it is an explanation of the responsibilities and roles that traders face in their day-to-day business. In writing this book, Weiss both educates and encourages traders and would-be traders by providing an interesting inside look at the career of a trader.

Each chapter discusses the products, environments and objectives of traders. The products range from mortgage-backed securities to intercurrency interest rate swaps. The trading environment issues include concerns about the role of the Federal Reserve and interest rates to the tax laws affecting the decision by investors to purchase one municipal bond issue over another. Weiss attempts to present a scenario of striving for a realistic objective for return on investment while keeping in mind that every trader wants to make a substantial profit. He explains such strategies as hedging, market direction and the bid and offer process to achieve that goal.
