The dividends are doing well again for this month, as for the markets, seems we had a nice bounce on friday, value is clearly showing up again in a few spots. I’ll post information at the end of the month once the final tally comes in.
In the meantime i’d like to just briefly talk about a television show i just watched last night. It is about Trading so if that isn’t your thing then this probably won’t mean much to you.
I always enjoy watching financial documentaries and this one is no exception. This one is called ‘Traders – Millions by the Minutes‘.
You can find this around the web if you look hard enough but it recently aired on the BBC. There are several episodes, only 2 of which have come out so far but it shows a really good overview of trading from all walks of life, the big time hedge fund guys down to the little guy in the bedroom, it shows the high and lows of being a trader – an emotional roller coaster for sure.
Having experienced it all, it is one of the most satisfying yet one of the most draining occupations i’ve ever undertaken. That said, you do learn a huge amount about yourself and the empowerment is amazing. You can apply the learnings to anything – it shows that anything is possible.
What i found amazing from the show were the comments by everyone, it was almost like looking into a mirror – i’ve fortunately come out the other side and done well for myself but i picked up a few scars along the way, it’s certainly not for everyone. Some people get it, some never well, some keep fighting and keep treading water.
If you get a chance, try and watch it. It is a fascinating insight.
