A film that follows trader's in Chicago who are working in an ever-changing environment with stock value rising and falling on a whim and the very technology used to make deals being revolutionised. Electronic trading has changed business on the Chicago trading floors forever and for the people who are unwilling ( or unable) to adapt to computerised methods its bye-bye as we see in this forex documentary.
Floored was released in 2009 making it a very relevant documentary for those interested in the financial crisis of 2008. The filmmakers provide a unique insight into the world of trading at the time in a claimed honest fashion. There are few trading documentaries like Floored and it highlights just one industry out of hundreds in which the human brain is being taken over by the machine for better or for worse.
