Movie on Traders to be Screened in San Francisco
On January 28 the San Francisco investment management community will come together to watch the movie “FLOORED” which documents the issues facing floor traders as the industry continues its march away from traditional floor trading. Please see the release below for more information.
Additionally, on an unrelated note, I would like to invite all futures/commodities professionals in the Bay Area to join the San Francisco Futures Professionals LinkIn Group. The first meeting of this group will be sometime in February and will include traders/managers, service providers and (potentially) investors.
San Francisco Special Screenings of “FLOORED”
Followed by Director Q&A
January 28, 2010 at 5:00 and 7:30 PM
San Francisco, CA
Join us for sneak peek screenings of “Floored,” a feature-length documentary about the up and down lives of floor traders. Screenings will be followed by Q&A with Director James Allen Smith. (Run time: 80 minutes)
About the film: FLOORED is a gripping, honest look behind the curtain of the trading floor that few have ever seen. Like many aspects of our economy, computerized trading is changing the dynamics on the actual trading floors. FLOORED offers a unique window to this lesser-known world of finance.
