Stock Jobbers (Grose 1811 Dictionary)

Stock Jobbers

Persons who gamble in Exchange Alley, by pretending to buy and sell the public funds, but in reality only betting that they will be at a certain price, at a particular time; possessing neither the stock pretended to be sold, nor money sufficient to make good the payments for which they contract: these gentlemen are known under the different appellations of bulls, bears, and lame ducks.

Definition taken from The 1811 Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue, originally by Francis Grose.
