This week we learnt about The blind currency trader
In 2004, Vishal Agrawal was diagnosed with a degenerative eye disease. Four years later, he was completely blind. Today, the 29-year-old is a forex trader with Standard Chartered Bank. Agarwal uses a speech recognition software on his trading terminal.
