Traders: Millions By The Minute - A Trading Documentary That Is Well Worth Watching
It's quite rare to find a program about trading on one of the main TV channels, and the ones that are shown are generally dumbed down, but there was a documentary called Traders: Millions By The Minute that was shown on the BBC a few months ago that was surprisingly good.
I didn't talk about it at the time because only a small percentage of my readers are from the UK, but I have just discovered that is now available to watch on YouTube, which obviously means that everyone can now get a chance to watch it.
This documentary takes a close look at the financial trading industry and follows some of the individual traders who trade the markets every day, including people who work in the city and people such as myself who trade from home.
It is split into two parts. The first part is more focused on the city workers, and goes behind the scenes at a training company that teaches people how to trade the markets, whilst the second part focuses more on the people who trade the markets using their own money, some of which are extremely naive and almost certain to lose money in the long run.
Here are both parts of this excellent documentary if you would like to check it out for yourself:
