What the New York Stock Exchange Will Look Like in 30 Years

Morgan Housel recently met up with veteran exchange trader Doreen Mogavero at the New York Stock Exchange. Mogavero has been a floor trader for 30 years. In this video, he asks what she thinks the NYSE -- now part of NYSE Euronext -- will look like 30 years from now. Have a look. (A transcript follows.)

Morgan Housel: What would the New York Stock Exchange look like 30 years from now?

Doreen Mogavero: I don't think anybody knows what the world's going to look like 30 years from now, so it's kind of hard to say what the floor is going to look like. I have to think it's not going to look too much different than it looks today. Probably more people, a few more people, doing different things, I would think. Not necessarily trading, but different support people for maybe systems or something like that. A little more Star Wars-y, probably. But I think overall it will probably look pretty much the same.
