Back in 1987 PBS filmed the hedge fund manager, Paul Tudor Jones, as he predicted the 1987 stock market crash. ¬†Paul was young at the time as he was only 33 years old. ¬†The name is “Trader: The Documentary.”
The filming took place during late 1986 and the early part of 1987. ¬†The video is very hard to find as Paul Tudor Jones wanted it outside of circulation. ¬†It briefly came on YouTube a few years ago but it was taken down. ¬†Finding¬†a copy is very difficult. ¬†But an asian video sharing site still has it available. ¬†It may be slow to load, but well worth the watch. ¬†You can see how he traded with very limited charts back then.
Estimates are that Paul Tudor Jones made somewhere between $80 – $100 million on that day.
There are not that many copies that exist. ¬†The copies were¬†supposedly selling on eBay for a lot of money. ¬†There are traders out their who would pay big bucks to see this trader documentary. ¬†They hope to glean small tidbits of information that can help them achieve an edge. ¬†They are looking for that slight edge.
It is around 55 minutes long and has an interesting mix of technical and fundamental analysis. ¬†Watch Paul Tudor Jones trade S&P futures, crude oil, and currencies. ¬†Also see him¬†skiing¬†in Gstaad, Switzerland.
