Checking In on Europe

While other DMMS look to regional and national markets DMM Donald Civitanova (right), along with fellow DMM Wingszi Chiang (behind him), follows stock trading for companies based in Europe, the Middle East and Asia. If the differing cultures and regulations weren't a big enough challenge, the time differences force him to keep the hours of a dairy farmer but technology helps. "I used to get up and check the news and trades at three in the morning," he says. Now he can check in on overseas markets with his iPad to get a head start in the trading day but, as he puts it, "these days that's around 4:30 am."
