More about the TV Series and our online course training:
‘Million Dollar Traders’ was a British reality television series created by a hedge fund manager Lex van Dam (
Eight ordinary people are given a million dollars, a fortnight of intensive training and two months to run their own hedge fund. Can they make a killing?
The experiment reveals the inner workings of a City trading floor. The money is supplied by hedge fund manager Lex van Dam: he wants to see if ordinary people can beat the professionals, and he expects a return on his investment too. Yet no-one foresees the financial crisis that lies ahead.
The traders were selected in spring 2008, before the US credit crisis gathered pace. The successful candidates were chosen, trained and dispatched to their specially created trading room in the heart of the Square Mile. Among them are an environmentalist, a soldier, a boxing promoter, an entrepreneur, a retired IT consultant, a vet, a student and a shopkeeper.
As the novices learn the dark art of trading stocks and shares, the financial markets start to buckle. Making money takes second place to basic survival as the brutal realities of global economics take their toll on the traders. How do they cope? Will they secure themselves a bonus, or walk away with nothing?
Part of the City Season.
The Million Dollar Traders Course is available on our website and includes unique material that was never shown on the TV series and has now been developed into a comprehensive educational program teaching Lex’s 5-Step-Trading(R) process applied to stocks, currencies, commodities, technical trading strategies and economic analysis.
As you progress through the course you will gain a better understanding of how professional investors like Lex approach the markets and begin to develop your own style of trading using his framework. Crucially you will be equipped to recognize and adapt when market conditions change, and take advantage of trading opportunities that other strategies cannot possibly prepare you for. By the end of the course you will be fully prepared to invest on a personal basis or pursue a career as a professional trader.
