This article aims to explore the role of ethnomathematics in trading and to conduct a cross-cultural analysis of mathematical practices in financial markets. Ethnomathematics is the study of mathematical practices in different cultural contexts, and it is increasingly recognized as an important field in mathematics education and research. In this article, the authors argue that understanding the cultural contexts of mathematical practices in financial markets is crucial for developing effective trading strategies and for building culturally sensitive financial institutions. The article draws on a range of sources, including ethnographic research, historical analysis, and quantitative data analysis, to explore the ways in which mathematical practices in financial markets are shaped by cultural factors such as religion, gender, and social class. The authors also examine the implications of these cultural factors for trading strategies and financial institutions, and suggest that a deeper understanding of ethnomathematics can lead to more effective and equitable financial systems. Overall, this article contributes to the growing body of research on the role of culture in mathematics education and research, and highlights the importance of understanding cultural contexts in the development of financial markets and institutions.
