"Cancel Crash" is blast from past, “Floored” not so much apparently

December 12, 2013 10:21 AM

Being the good traders they are, Attain Capital Management recently took the time to watch and review the two movies to debut earlier this year on Alpha TV. Although they were not fans of “Floored,” which debuted on Sept. 6, they seemed to have found “Cancel Crash,” which debuted on Oct. 18, a much more enjoyable experience calling it a “blast from the past.”

The movies aired after making the 2013 edition of our Top 15 Trading Movies, which also saw “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” make the list because of Attain Capital’s own list of top trading movies.

We enjoyed reading Attain’s thoughts on the movies, even if they found “Floored” to be “somewhere between boring and depressing, but with none of the interesting parts which might come with being depressing.” Even if they didn’t find the movie itself that interesting, we hope they at least found the stories of the traders profiled compelling.

At this point, more than 12,000 people have seen the movies on our site, which is something we are very proud of. With that kind of engagement, we wanted to share what at least one viewer thought of the two movies.

We’d love to hear what other viewers thought as well. Which movie did you prefer? Are there any other trading movies you would to see us premiere?
