A broker is a middleman.
A trader on the other hand does trading on commodities (buy\sell)
There are 2 types of traders. Proprietary traders and market traders
Prop traders basically buy\sell accordin to what they think will be profitable.
Market traders maximise profits from trade requirements set by their sales team.
Dealer is usually an interchangeable term for trader.
