I enjoyed watching this series. You might find a part of you in one or in all of the participants. I was very impressed by the Trader/Manager Anton and the Trader/Mother Caroline.

This is last and final episode...I guess all I can say is, "How bad do you want it."

A few things.

1) Why are they using manual phone ordered entries at the trade desk? I'm assuming because it makes for better TV. Does anyone really still do this? Even on straight equity trades?

2) To be fair, I'd love to see comparable performance from "professionals" during the same time period. Warren Buffet and a whole host of other supposed gurus can claim to have prophetic abilities, but Buffet lost $26BN during the bubble burst. That period was a very difficult period in the market.

3) I wonder if they're restricted to straight equity trades. They show them "hedging" but there's I haven't seen any options, no futures, no forex, etc.

4) I wonder what Lex's true exposure is. How much profit do you think he gains from the royalties of the show? In essence, is the experiment truly independent? If he's making more than $1M on the profits from the show, then in essence, he has no risk, and therefore, it's hard to believe his behavior would be the same.

**POSSIBLE SPOILERS**









I wanted to strangle some of those fools. Especially during the 'walk-out.' That Emil dude was the worst.

And when the supervisor is telling them about why they needed to be stern placing the orders, they can't even take and understand that criticism, was just childish beyond childish.

Cleo was cute, but she was cancerous.

What an opportunity to have someone give you.

Watched the entire thing and answered one of my questions. Apparently they faired well compared to "professional" traders via the hedge fund index.

I watched it today. I enjoyed it. Spoiler below... lol, if you haven't seen it yet...

Same story.... Fear of pulling the trigger, no plan/not trading your plan, etc. Also - uhm, no hedging... for a hedge fun, that is kinda important. The cry baby girl should have been fired much sooner, she was distracting the rest of the team.

I would have liked to have seen more about what training material was presented to the traders by Lex.

Hi, are you Lex Van Dam?

My guess is that or Anton Kreil. When you are ready to release something again contact me and I'd like to do an interview.

I would have liked that also. But I got the impression that they got the crash course on the full gambit of trading material.

They obviously weren't pure technical traders and focused more on news and what was happening in the economy, but I remember them talking about 'momentum' during one of the teaching lessons with chart examples.

I noticed one of them was reading Reminiscences of a Stock Operator... Wonder if it was on the recommended reading list, or if the person did their own research.

I think the group could have benefited more from Dr. Brett

You could also see many times how Anton was wanting to give clear instructions to someone who was clueless with the deer-in-headlight look, but was under strict orders not to coach someone about what positions to put on or how to handle trades.

A trader friend just forwarded these videos to me and I watched them. What great stuff for beginner, advanced, and any type of trader on the emotional and psychological travails awaiting.

Highly recommended.
