Have you seen this guy?

trader_10-20.jpgThis is Albert Young, a NYSE trader for H&R Block Financial, and frequent subject for generic stressed-out trader images. There are at least five wire images of Young in just the last month, with Young making the same worried face.

CNBC’s Bob Pisani caught up with the man being dubbed, “Al the Trader” today. Said Al:

We’ve been shaken down here. The American spirit has been shaken. There is a lot of uncertainty. I constantly watch the board myself because a great man who works down here told me that this here’s a book and it tells you a story. If you can go home and figure out what that story was for today, you’re one step ahead of that game.
