This is an excellent little gem of a documentary made back in the 1980's on the foreign exchange traders and dealers of the global banks. The BBC documentary looks at a typical day in the lives of three traders in New York, London, and Hong Kong, while the technology and fashion may have changed, the business of foreign exchange trading is still characterized by large volumes, big and fast potential profits and losses, and ample stress and excitement. This is a must watch for anyone interested in the foreign exchange market and currency trading.
On June 4, 1985 the Enterprise cameras focused on the international currency market. Three traders, one each in New York, London and Hong Kong, are followed through one typical day. The stress, the responsibilities and the dedication of each man is evident as they work through a day of trading in Pounds Sterling, U. S. Dollars and German Marks.
