Trader - Paul Tudor Jones

This rare video offers an insight into the operations of famous hedge fund trader Paul Tudor Jones. The video was initially aired by PBS, but was pulled in the 1990's following Jones' disapproval. While its old, it's definitely an interesting and entertaining watch. This is a must see for aspiring traders and hedge fund managers.

Original Video Description:
Is financial trading an art, science, profession or out-and-out gamble? If you're interested in money and you want to know what it's really like on Wall Street, this is the video you, your family, your colleagues and your friends should own. Filmed before Wall Street's October 1987 crash, TRADER is a riviting one hour documentary of a fascinating man, Paul Tudor Jones II. It delivers a rarely seen view of futures trading and explains the workings of this frantic, highly charged marketplace. It gives viewers an inside look at his estate in Virginia, skiing in Gstaad, his New York apartment. It also examines Jones' prediction that America is nearing the end of a 200-year bull market. If he's right – and he almost always is – this country and the world are about to experience economic changes of unprecedented proportions.
