    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    A few documentaries I like:

    Trader:paul Tudor Jones-----was on PBS , then on VHS, which reportedly he tried to make them all vanish. It is available on youtube in 4 or 5 parts.


    Open Outcry. I had the VHS tape..missing.

    Floored--



    As for movies; it's Wall Street and Rogue Trader. Everything else is ehh.

    I also liked Boiler Room. Barbarians at the Gate was an excellent book but I never saw the movie. I probably should watch it since I am a James Garner fan.

    I like Too Big to Fail, Margin Call, The Game, and Inside Job.

    I've yet to find anything as good as those.
