This show was based on a series of interviews with various Wall Street folks.

While somewhat interesting in places, overall I was disappointed.

Any advice about investing or success on Wall Street was extremely vague, and mostly sounded like standard business platitudes.

The common theme from the traders shown was that their job life is frenetic. The pace and style is, ironically, exactly opposite the tried and true methodology for the vast majority of successful INVESTORS (i.e. as opposed to speculators) - as described by legendary folks like John Bogle and Warren Buffett.

Timothy Sykes, a day trader who had made a killing in the post-internet market collapse (as a microcap short biased trader -- he was obviously in the right place at the right time) was a perfect example of the hyperactive, overconfident, and self-congratulatory 20-somethings that are playing the Wall Street game. These folks seem to have NO clue that making $10 million to $100 million on Wall Street by trading is about as realistic for 99++% of traders as the ghetto kid who is convinced he'll make the NBA by playing basketball instead of studying. I guess the youth get their drive from dreaming big.

(To his credit, Tim does admit he was lucky when he made his big gains). On the other hand, he talks about the need to control emotions, but is constantly very emotional when he trades and discusses his trading. He also seems completely random to me as he trades -- basically, he's a technician who gets his contrarian ideas from Wall Street and technical publications. Not exactly unique. Not exactly insightful, though apparently delusional.

I really enjoyed this series except for the idiot Tim Sykes. The show covers a different assortment of traders and market professionals which gives a nice overview of some financial people. The hard part to watch is a failed trader named Tim Sykes whose fund is down 36% since January 2006 and has had to resort to fighting for media attention since he can't make money trading. Some of his idiocy is funny at times and sometimes it is downright painful. A good show overall though if you like the stock market. There are only 6 epsiodes of this show and the extras are light and basically pointless so be aware of that before you purchase the 2 DVDs. It is a much smaller DVD set than the average buyer would realize. I know I was very surprised.

I deceided to buy the entire season 1 based off the first show. It may not be for everyone, but if you enjoy finance and intrested in how the Wallstreeters are living.......you may enjoy. My wife would fall asleep trying to watch this, but seeing their hunger, work ethic, and picking up a tip here and there is what keeps me intrested in the show.

As I do trading for a living, I can identify some of the traders' day to day life. It shows different traders/Fund mgr' typical days are like, but nothing special. It surely lacks Drama! It's ok to watch just once, but I won't watch it again. Too boring!
Perhaps, Gordon Gekko doesn't exist in real Wall street.

Nice to see that the once-hot Tim Sykes enjoyed his little brush with fame, but as the respected "Trader" magazine publishes the 2007 list of "Hottest Traders Under 30," our sad little Timmy is nowhee to be found. Quoting from the magazine's lead paragraph:

"You won't see Cilantro's humility-challenged Tim Sykes, who in the past year has gone from wunderkind to Ryan Leaf-like laughingstock."

[...]

(Ryan Leaf, for those non-football fans, was the second pick in the 1998 NFL draft -- behind Peyton Manning -- who was such a bust he was out of the league only a few years later.)

I trade stocks from home a little bit and the show inspired me. Best parts were the trading floors, Alex and Tim turning $16,000 into $1.5 million. It doesn't get very detailed on the technical side of finance, which I guess is good because that would be kind of boring. I've caught a few episodes of the new season on TV - it's pretty entertaining, especially the 28-year-old Hedge-fund Manager who runs a $100 million fund - Damn! I got to go back to school!

This is a series that shows you why that nowhere in the world can you make it from nothing, as long as you're driven. This series follows people from different parts of Wall Street in each of there respected roles. After watching this it should leave you interested and motivated in investing!

I started watching during season two. After season two ended I decided I should see season one. It's obvious the producers took a different approach to the show after season one. I'm guessing they did away with the show because I haven't heard anything about it since season 2 ended. Too bad.
