To celebrate the 30th anniversary of “Trading Places,” the quintessential trading movie, now even more poignant with the closure of the trading floor, we are launching of our own movie and video player service, Alpha TV. And on Sept. 6, Alpha TV will host the World Wide Web premiere of the director’s cut of “FLOORED.”
A year ago we put together a top 10 trading movies list, but decided we left off some lesser known gems. Therefore, our 2013 list has been expanded to 15 movies. These movies are a combination of documentaries, docudramas and fiction, but all have a strong tie to trading or events that affected the markets significantly. Although we have taken reader comments into consideration, there probably are others that we’ve missed. Please put your suggestions in the comments section below. So relax and take in the shows. Now all we need is the popcorn.
