    Worth to check it out if you are interested in trading!

    Million Dollar Traders is a three part series that aired on the BBC about hedge fund manager Lex Van Dam who tries to teach ordinary people to become successful traders. The series is particularly interesting because none of the traders understand what they are doing, but they all trade as though they did and the results were terrifying, both financially and emotionally.

    I remember watching that documentary when it first aired.

    There's nothing new or interesting imo. As far as I remember, the person who done the best out of the bunch made a 7k loss.

    Also worth to watch is this interview with Anton Kreil who participated in that show.
    Less reality TV, more insights :)

    Looks good, I'm going to watch.
    i know a few successful traders, but I think its one of those abilities you either have or you don't.

    I already trade, tho wouldn't say that great at it tho, lol, it kinda swings and roundabouts, over all, not down that much, but not up that much either.. I never said i didn't have money, i Said i was a cheap ass,,, And seeing that hes a multimillionaire, that seems to have chased down any free links to it on the internet and had them removed, i figured he could afford missing out on little old cheap as fuck me's wedge of cash. That is of course, if anyone is good enough to share a link of course. lol
