Storyline

The London branch of Whitney Paine, a major American investment bank, is in the midst of a crisis; after the loss of $100 million, one of their leading traders, Tony Eisner commits suicide by putting a slug through his head while seated at his place in the board room. Despite the high stakes, many of the firm's staff are eager to step into Tony's now-vacated shoes and get credit for saving the company. Daniel Pascoe, the leading trader at the firm, is convinced that he's first in line for the assignment, but the firm imports a new trader from America, Anna Schuman. Daniel is enraged and makes a point of trying to dig up as much dirt on Anna as he can, but things are going to take another turn. Written by Ørnås

Dealers 1989
11 March 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

First of all its a movie. Did I enjoy it yes. Unlike other reviews I think it does a decent job of giving you a feel of what was expected of you to maintain a trading job in a major investment bank of that time. In addition the world of finance (1970,80)was a high energy high stakes games of egos especially in the trading world where you are only as good as what have you done for me lately. Think of this, being a trader is a high profile job, you get paid a hefty salary but one catch ,(you must make money) making zero or losing 5 million is the same fate so without question one would always exit losing the 5 million not the zero to obtain the profit and the way of life (same fate) and besides not the traders money.

Greed, egos all that is in that world no question about that it becomes an addiction.

PS The Traders television series did also reflect the real trading world very well and I really enjoyed it

On Rebecca DeMornay it was one of her earlier films and if anything if you are a fan of hers, wants me to watch the movie even more. I think Paul McGann was excellent in the film.
