TRADERS’: What did you think of trading/traders before you got involved?
Mercer: Thatâ€™s an interesting question. Iâ€™ve been interested in trading since I was a young child. I used to follow stock prices in the newspaper each morning to see what moved the most. I even tracked options
prices before I was a teenager. The whole concept intrigued me a great deal, and this was long before the days of electronic trading â€“ weâ€™re talking about back in the late 1970â€™s and early 1980â€™s. The bottom line is that Iâ€™ve always been fascinated by the financial world. If I find a new financial vehicle, I want to learn about it immediately.
