Million Dollar Traders (3 part series)

Discussion in 'Professional Trading' started by OddTrader, Jun 16, 2009.

  1. "About:
    Eight ordinary people are given a million dollars, a fortnight of intensive training and two months to run their own hedge fund. Can they make a killing?"

    "The money is supplied by hedge fund manager Lex van Dam: he wants to see if ordinary people can beat the professionals, and he expects a return on his investment too. Yet no-one foresees the financial crisis that lies ahead. The traders were selected in spring 2008, before the US credit crisis gathered pace.

    Among the traders are an environmentalist, a soldier, a boxing promoter, an entrepreneur, a retired IT consultant, a vet, a student and a shopkeeper.

    This week, the novice city traders are struggling to make it in the midst of a global credit crunch. With just a couple of weeks to go, the gap between those who are trading well and those who are not widens, and Lex Van Dam takes decisive action against the weakest in the group. By close of trading on the final day just three traders are left, but will they manage to make Lex a profit? (From the UK, in English)
  2. I thought the show was pretty good when I watched it a few months ago.

    There was an older thread when the show first start airing and one of the people from the show talked to us about it on the thread. It was the boxing promoter I think.
