Warm Up The Flux Capacitor

Ahhh remember the 1980's? When mobile phones were the size of bricks, smoking a pipe set you apart from mere common folk, and that irresistible temptation of singing along to 10cc's "The Wall Street Shuffle" whilst driving your BMW 6 Series through pleasant country lanes and tactfully negotiating deals with your currency broker at the same time via your purpose-built car cell phone will checking you portable Reuters Forex ticker. Thus sets the scene for "Billion Dollar Day", a documentary where filming was made around the clock in London, New York and Hong Kong, as three men gambled on which way the dollar would turn.

A fascinating documentary for all you currency traders. Watch how our colleagues of the past use to do it the hard-boiled way. Many people aren't aware of this documentary, so just making it available to view in one place for all.
