Watch the full documentary with 20 minutes of additional footage on Amazon: The series follows a group of day traders, ranging from professionals with 20 years' experience to new traders just starting out on the markets. We also meet the people who work behind the scenes, like the employees of a brokerage or programmers creating a trading platform, who make it possible for day traders to function. The series ends on a Friday when the crucial non-farm employment numbers come out in the US.
