Knowing more tools and more tech doesn't necessarily relate to making your employer significantly more profit, you might produce less bugs and be slightly more efficient than someone with less experience but it doesn't scale well, they can easily just hire 5 grads instead of giving you 5 times your current salary.

Working in financial markets is one place where your coding efforts can have significant impact on a company's bottom line and where the rewards can scale accordingly.

Honestly, if you're not a 'wiz' and adding multiple times your peers to the bottom line why would you expect to be further rewarded for experience or years of service to the company or industry? It is fine to plateau.
