Note to traders.
If your desk is anywhere near the so-called "flash cam" or "trader cam" on the trading floor—the camera set up to allow live television interviews—be careful what you have on your computer screen. Actually, be careful what you have on your computer screen no matter where your desk is.
An interview this morning on Australia's 7 News with Macquarie private wealth advisor Martin Lakos has gone viral faster than the swine flu.
A rather typical (dull) discussion of Australian interest rates suddenly came alive when a trader sitting behind Lakos is seen 'trolling the web for nude photos. The guy can be seen mid-screen on the left, and the image in question pops up around 1:04 into the interview (Warning: This may not be safe for work).
