Daniel Radcliffe is one of many celebrities set to appear at Monday's BGC Partners’ annual 9/11 charity event, full proceeds to which will be donated to charities. More on that can be read here.

Celebrities will run the trading floor that day helping big-money clients make transactions, the proceeds from which go to charity.

The Wall Street advising and analysis firm has roots in Cantor Fitzgerald, the company that lost the most employees in the World Trade Center.

BGC Partners donates the full proceeds it earns from commissions during the trading day, and last year that amounted to about $10 million.

This year the celebrity traders may have a highly volatile market to contend with due to European ills, but plenty of cool customers are expected to be trading.
