Episode 1 of 2
DURATION: 1 HOUR

Two-part documentary series which goes inside the fast and fiercely competitive world of financial traders to meet the men and women who play the markets in London, New York, Chicago and Amsterdam. The film offers a rare, personal portrait of what life is like for the people who do this lucrative but relentless job, against a backdrop of non-stop news, globalised markets and the rise of ultra-fast computers capable of placing millions of trades at a time.

Manhattan hedge fund manager Karen believes that money is power and making it is fun, as she juggles two sets of twins, a busy social calendar and her $200-million fund. Bob has spent more than three decades yelling out his trades and jostling for position on Chicago's cattle futures trading floor, but now he thinks it may be time wean himself off his trading addiction. London day traders Will and Piers use their expertise to train others in the art of making money from tiny moves in the markets. But they warn their new trainees it is going to be far harder to master the psychological and emotional skills needed for trading than the technicalities. Ultimately, it is a story of money, desire and emotion

the thing that worried me was the traders trading real money after a months "training"

good luck with that ............no offence but a month is not really an apprenticeship ?

Let them come my good man.

I for one wish them all the best, and sincerely hope they achieve their goals, whatever they may be.

As for god helping us, well I'm certainly happy for the help I've received, so let us not be selfish, and ask god to help others too.

Best
John.

Yes very true.

I've found Cod Liver Oil tablets produce better daily results than praying to big bad God who seems to be permanently off on vacation.

I wonder how much money does one lose before he notices lil ol thee :devilish:

It was a slightly better program than I was expecting. Interesting that the two people featured who had been in the business longest were also both looking to get out and do something else. I suppose we'll never know if the guy we see at the end setting up his 4 screens at home ever had success or not.
