One of the greatest corrections in the market eventually turned out to be a grand trough that ditched millions of nascent businesses, huge corporate houses, eagle-eyed investors and of course, day-traders and punters who could never predict the fall so deep. Though, they all knew it was coming; it was still short of time for them to prepare themselves for it. A better narration of this tale has been done in Michael Douglas’ movie Wall Street where his character named Gordon Gekko notably articulated the undying words, “Greed is good.”
Once more, they are back with yet another heart-rending story on economic turndown through the sequel of the previous release- Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps. This time, they have involved a more realistic approach to bring the movie closer to the hearts of stock traders in real. With the help of the expertise of Lightspeed, the producer has tried to demonstrate how Gekko and other traders live through the trading experience with the help of live charts, stock quotes, trading screen layouts and watch lists that are designed by Lightspeed Trading. The movie would be a nice demo for prospective Lightspeed clients as most of their features and products have been well laid bare in the movie, being evident to how they make day-trading an easier affair for a trader.
The software programs of Lightspeed Trading bring the movie to an edge of supremacy and realism, as the stock market technicals are not supported by animated graphics but are backed by real-time stock trading programs that traders in the real world prefer using. For traders, brokers and stock investors, the release of this movie would be a grand event as it will exemplify their own lives to them. This is the reason why the movie is largely awaited among the brokerage houses, day-traders and as well retail investors.
The plot for the movie was initially laid to present a cynicism and irony to capitalism; though, eventually, the director- Oliver Stone molded the context and presented Gekko as a heroic figure rather than being a villainous character. In the movie, Gordon Gekko is the lead role of a laudable individual who chases his dreams and draws on to his aspirations as steps to success and glory.
For an aspiring stock trader, Michael Douglas in the role of Gordon Gekko will turn out to be a paradigm and instigate him to move ahead in this passionate profession. However, as the movie reveals towards the end that Gekko adapted to some unlawful practices to grab quick money, he ends up in prison for a couple of years; leaves a message for the aspiring traders and brokers to check the regulations and commandments to avoid ruthless and harsh consequences.
Gekko has been identified as a person who is always ahead of everything, may it be the world’s first mobile phone in his hand in the early days of technology boom, a modish workplace with Quotron machines on his desk, or his overall grandeur. Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps revives his image, but this time, no marvelous beach house, no private jet planes, or women, but Gekko displays his fine taste in picking up the trading platform, that is, Lightspeed. That’s how in 2010, he proves to be still ahead of times!
