England - London - LIFFE futures traders.
Brokers working at the London International Financial Futures Exchange (LIFFE) on the trading floor in the 90s. Otherwise known as the Pit where Derivatives, Options, Futures and their contracts are exchanged in a frenzy of arm and hand expressions which communicate prices and quantities. The LIFFE exchange was synonymous with Thatcherite capitalist money-making ethos in the City of London of the 80s and early 90s before the takeover by Euronext in January 2002. It is currently known as Euronext.liffe. Euronext subsequently merged with New York Stock Exchange in April 2007.Add to Lightbox Download
