"Corporate skyscrapers, located at the cores of the world’s ‘global’ and wannabe global cities, house the corporate executives, stock markets and super-rich financiers who draw portions of their vast wealth from neocolonial deep excavation of scarce and valuable metals and ores in the world’s peripheries."

I think that "stock markets" is a misprint for "stock treader" in this sentence, am I wrong?

    Not necessarily. A stock market, or stock exchange, has to be in a building somewhere. Even if its stock trading aspect is entirely automated, as in the NASDAQ exchange, its computers and its staff have to be in a building somewhere. There is no reason these shouldn't be in a skyscraper in a major city. In fact, since its staff probably want to be in such a city, it's even likely.
