Investing is a fun game but isn’t it a fun to see how the big boys do it too? I really get a kick out movies about investing and the stock market. There have been a few classics over the years and with the Wall Street 2 “Money Never Sleeps” coming to theatres soon enough I’ll be one of the first people in line to check that one out.

Wall Street

This is classic amongst all money movies. So famous that even Boiler Room has a scene where they quote from the movie Wall Street. The movie has such a cult following that there’s a shirt named after the main character. Did I mention that I’m looking forward to seeing the sequel
The Gecko

Boiler Room

Pay close attention to this one all of you penny stock investors and you’ll learn a valuable lesson around pump and dumps. Systems might be a little more sophisticated these days but ultimately it’s the same story.

Bonus viewing material:
Check out the TV show Wall Street Warriors seasons 1 & 2. It’s an actual documentary of people in their different roles on Wall Street along with different places in their careers. Although somewhat staged, is a little more of a glimpse into the reality of Wall Street.
