A series of videos covering a week in the life of a group of day traders. Watch the full documentary with 20 minutes of additional footage on Amazon:
The series follows a group of day traders, ranging from professionals with 20 years’ experience to new traders just starting out on the markets. We also meet the people who work behind the scenes, like the employees of a brokerage or programmers creating a trading platform, who make it possible for day traders to function. The series ends on a Friday when the crucial non-farm employment numbers come out in the US.
This final episode of the series takes place during the US non-farm payroll numbers announcement. We can see how the atmosphere at the office is different with none of the usual banter as the traders prepare for this extremely important economic number. When the number comes out we see the burst of action that takes place at the news and then finish with some closing thoughts by one of the senior traders we had met in the series.
