I have seen lot of stock market based movies sometimes for learning and sometimes for the sheer adrenalin rush. I particularly like following movies and would recommend investors and traders to see them as they not only provide good learning but also boils your blood and keep you on which is very essential in stock markets.
Margin Call (2011) : A taut, sinewy drama set in a Wall Street investment bank.
Wall Street (1987) : The classic Wall street film. You will love Michael Douglas' character Gordan Gekko
Wall Street - Money never sleeps (2010) : Wall Street part 2. A sequel to the 1987 popular movie “Wall Street”.
Trader (1987) : A very brilliant movie. Story about Paul Tudor Jones and his day-to-day life as an active investor.
Pursuit of Happiness (2006) : A very touching movie based on the real life of Chris Gardner. Will Smith is as brilliant as ever.
Rogue Trader (1999) : British version of "Wall Street".
Enron- The smartest guys in the room (2005) : Tale of Enron's rise and fall. One of the best documentaries ever made.
Quants - The Alchemists of Wall Street (2010) : A short but excellent documentary on quantitative analysts on Wall Street.
