Cell! Cell! Cell! NYSE OKs Mobile Phones

So, while you can no longer use a mobile phone at any kind of performance in New York Cit there’s one place that will now allow them after having them banned for many years. For the first time ever, traders will soon be allowed to use mobile phones on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. The idea is to make it easier for them to communicate with customers. However, as noisy and crazy as it gets down there, I can’t imagine how useful a mobile phone would be. I have enough trouble hearing people on my mobile phone if the dog next door is barking.
