Million Dollar Traders by Lex van Dam and Anton Kreil

Honestly I have spent some time watching this TV Series because I really wanted to understand what an actual Trading Looks like. And since this is a reality show, you will see emotions of people and how they will react on situations either good or bad. Because of my eagerness to find a substantial income and getting myself out of the rat race, I really did a lot of research, more reading and planning so that I could understand the Terminologies used in the Trading world.

I am not a Trading expert as this moment but I am looking forward to be one. This is the reason why I created this website, to educate myself even better while sharing the information and my thoughts of becoming a Financially Free, Wealthy Entrepreneur. No doubt all of us wanted to be one.



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?

Storyline
Million Dollar Traders follows a group of twelve wannabe traders dealing in shares during the events of the financial crisis of 2007-2009 which was then whittled down to the final eight. The contestants came from various backgrounds, including a fight promoter, a day trader, an IT/banking recruitment consultant, a working mother, a retired IT engineer and a student, among others. During the series hedge fund manager Lex van Dam gave the contestants $1 million of his own money to trade for 2 months. Professional trader Anton Kreil, was appointed as the manager of the group. The three-part BBC series, narrated by Andrew Lincoln, was a part of the "City Season" programming on the BBC. It aired on BBC 2 in the UK at 9pm on Monday evenings between 12 and 27 January 2009.

Million Dollar Traders was a 2009 British reality television series devised by hedge fund manager Lex van Dam, which attempted to recreate the famous Turtle Traders experiment devised by Richard Dennis in the 1980s.BackgroundMillion Dollar Traders followed a group of twelve wannabe traders dealing in shares during the events of the financial crisis of 2007-2009 which was then whittled down to the final eight. The contestants came from various backgrounds, including a fight promoter, a day trader, an IT/banking recruitment consultant, a working mother, a retired IT engineer and a student, among others. During the series van Dam gave the London-based contestants the sterling equivalent of $1 million of his own money to trade for 2 months. Former professional trader Anton Kreil, was appointed as the manager of the group.As with the original experiment, those who lasted the course broadly confirmed the claim that novices could become professional-level traders, making small profits or at least lower losses trading in very turbulent markets during the filming than professionals, who lost four times greater amounts over the same period.

The interactions of the traders and their reactions to the stress of having to perform makes this a compelling three part series.
