An inside look at Wall Street’s most famous trader

Peter Tuchman is no stranger to the camera. He stepped on the floor of the NYSE in 1985. Now he’s the face of the market’s best and worst days. Tuchman’s experience on the floor goes back decades and includes significant events in the market’s history such as Black Monday (1987), the financial crisis of 2008, and even the coronavirus pandemic. As technology and the business of trading evolved over the years, Tuchman says he’s had to adapt and reinvent himself.
