The Rare Artful Stock Exchange Photo

This impressionistic picture from NYT’s “Pictures of the Day” on Friday rang a few different bells:

• Wall Street: America’s DNA

• Wall Street: America’s heart beat.

• When is a diptych not a diptych?

• Ghost in the Machine.

• Enslaved?

• What drives the market is program trading. It’s just dressed up with a human face.

Anything strike you?
