Last last year I ran a technical analys course in Paris and a very good professional trader attending mentioned he had got into the business after seeing the film “Trading Places” nearly 30 years ago. It had so taken him aback by what he saw he felt he must get into these markets. I saw it again recently and it struck me that it remains unique in that it at remains the only comedy about the commodities markets to this day. Dan Aykroyd confirm this in this Bloomberg interview which is short and pretty good. Nice advertisement for Bloomberg too – a bit of a stretch to say that the floor has been replaced by Bloomberg terminals though.
