Million Dollar Traders was a British reality television series created by Lex. The series was based on the premise that in a very short time period he could teach a group of complete beginners how to trade. "I put my money where my mouth was and gave them $1 million to trade with over a period of eight weeks," says Lex.
The result was amazing: the group as a whole did better than the professionals over that period. Unfortunately, not everybody had the ability or mental toughness to trade, but what became clear was that you just cannot tell beforehand: the best traders of the group were a soldier, a student, and a 40-year-old mother with two children.
