3 TV Series Featuring Investing

Hollywood’s reputation for prioritizing sensational drama over accuracy applies just as well to movies, TV shows, and even documentaries about finance.

Not only do they take creative liberties with the narrative, but they are perfectly happy to substitute facts in order to capture the audience’s attention.

Perhaps one of the most egregious examples would be the prize-winning “The Wolf of Wall Street”. The movie followed a man who worked on Wall Street for only one day in his entire life.

But that doesn’t mean that there aren’t shows that manage to not only capture an audience but actually be fairly accurate or helpful for traders.

Sometimes, a series might not be strictly about trading or finance. Nonetheless, it can provide some valuable insights that help traders address issues relating to the markets.

Or they might simply be inspirational. Indeed they may urge some out-of-the-box thinking, and motivate a deeper dive into what makes the markets tick.

So let’s go over some of them today.

1.) Billions

The series is about finance, of course, not strictly trading. And to make it more exciting and dramatic, it focuses on the battle between the two main characters.

In fact, one is engaged in insider trading, and another is a regulator trying to catch him.

Of course, we don’t aspire to be insider traders or get involved in any other kind of criminal activity for that matter. But, as the drama unfolds, viewers get a pretty naked view of trading practices at the higher echelons of the market.

Although it’s a fictional series, many of the events are based on actual history. This can be an interesting starting point to research what major financial firms have done; both right and wrong.

2.) The Profit
