Cult film- Trader: The Documentary
For the first time since 1987 the TV documentary about Paul Tudor Jones is available to view. He had done his best to suppress it, buying up copies of videotapes and recently forcing youtube to remove it after only one day.
"Paul Tudor Jones II leans back in his chair and grins. The stock market
is going to crash, and he knows it. “There will be some type of a
decline, without a question, in the next 10, 20 months,” he says in his
rich Memphis drawl. “And it will be earth-shaking; it will be
saber-rattling... The 1987 video offers an intriguing window into the everyday life of
big-league traders, and it has the feel of a time capsule. Full of
swagger and braggadocio, Mr. Jones can be seen skiing in Gstaad,
Switzerland, or riding a horse on his estate overlooking the Chesapeake
Bay — when he is not screaming out orders to his traders. He comes
across as a young Gordon Gekko. Greed was not only good; it was fun."New York Times
