Floor Trader

On an exchange floor, a member who trades predominantly or exclusively on his/her own account. That is, the member does not represent a particular firm or client. A floor trader tends to profit from short-term price changes; they provide approximately 75% of liquidity in the market on a trading day. They contrast with floor brokers, who fill orders on behalf of clients. A floor trader is also called a registered trader or a registered competitive trader.
