Enter a world where pandemonium reigns and reckless ambition rules: the trading floors in the financial canyons of downtown Chicago. Here, men use strange hand signals to buy and sell everything from pork belly to soybeans while wearing the weight of our complex economy on their shoulders - along with their neon jackets. It's a physical, bruising place, one where a slight gain creates heroes, rich beyond what their high school educations should ever afford. But the wrong move on the wrong day can ruin lives. At a time when millions have lost fortunes in the fickle stock market and fear abounds about the faltering financial system, FLOORED is a gripping, honest look behind the curtain of the trading floor that few have ever seen. —James Allen Smith
awesome for those who want to understand the dynamics of trading markets
If you are not a trader yourself and if you have not seen the life ups and downs that the market brings with it, you will miss most of the finer details shown in this documentary. But if you are one of them, you will relate to and love every word spoken here. It should be enjoyable and information rich for the rest. It also covers a really long history of trading. I started mostly with electronic trading and it was good to know how it started , developed and transitioned into the current state. The best aspect of the documentary is that it is just pure truth, no judgments, no conspiracies, just pure truth. Practically the best place to start for people who want to understand the marketplace.
