What's the trading floor like post COVID?

Regarding the general vibe.  Lots of change since the 90s with a quieter atmosphere rather than the rapacious culture.  Do you think your colleagues have become more introverted due to staying at home all day?

Really depends on the product. For example, super flow based desks like cash equities or govies tend to be pretty loud and fast paced. Constant back and forth and banter between salespeople and traders. A more quant/structuring desk will probably be slower and thus more quiet
