In this third part of four episodes on movies about trading, Rob Booker and Jason Pyles base their discussion on the 2011 film “Margin Call.”
This topic brings about several unsettling subjects, such as the disparity between what is really happening on Wall Street versus what we hope is happening. Rob and Jason also talk about the various ethical dilemmas posed in “Margin Call”; the theme of living more simply; the business world’s value of employees in relation to their loyalty versus their usefulness; and Rob talks about why we tend to hold on to our losing positions in the market. For the beginners out there, Rob briefly teaches Jason how to sign up for a demo account.
