Forex TV: Brief Introduction
Some of the above recommendations are famous movies. But on the other hand, there are several gems in this list, most Forex traders are not aware of. All bring education and development in one shape or form. It makes sense for you to watch these recommendations because they deal with various aspects of trading and help us understand the different emotions, actions and decisions traders need to make, every single day.
Here is the video
Million Dollar Traders
Million Dollar Traders is a short documentary/series (based in London England) which is a really must see trading programme. This short series is based on a famous investor Lex Van Dam, who invested $1 million dollars of his own money. And took a group of people from all walks of life to see if he could make them profitable traders. As a beginner, shows like this are useful as they help you see some of the common emotions traders deal with when starting out. Another great benefit is the tips and tricks you can take from the show (not only from educators but from the traders itself). Check this out!
Floored Into The Pit
This documentary/film is a really good depiction of what trading was like from an historical stand point. Not only does it deal with history, it also deals with the transition in trading to where we are today. We do not see this from one dimension however. We see from profitable traders, losing traders & it helps traders understand some of the feelings emotions and actions which allow you to become profitable, or doom you to failure. A great 60+ minute investment in trading education.
This film is a classic and really has it all! excitement, joy, failure, success, money, hope, psychology: check it out. This is the true story of Nick Leeson. The man who broke bearings bank. He was a trader who moved up quite quickly, but his fall was even quicker. This film shows you what not to do when trading and it shows you some of the pitfalls that can easily come along, once you start winning in trading.
Wall Street Warriors
This is like an American version of Million Dollar Traders but goes into more depth about those featured in the show. This show does deal with new traders, but it also shows other aspects, like brokers, fund managers, educators etc. We get a full view from different aspects of what trading is really like. We get to see the opinions from different stand points of the trading world and we also see how some groups view others.
