A Lively show in the vein of Fast Money that gets into options
Have enjoyed this Rookie show; good mix of fast talk, witty banter and money-making options trades. They're not afraid to slow it down for those new to options while getting into more complex (can you say Iron Condor) ideas as well. Fun watching for the whole family and a spunky host to boot.
Too Fast, Too Furious. Good Info, for newbies tho.
If I was a CNBC exec, I would order this show to be redesigned from the ground up. The information is great, however, this style of presenting financial information and advice like a panel of loud NFL sports commentators is ridiculous. Everything about the show is nauseating... from the ever swimming camera to the annoying sound effects to thepsychedelic backdrop to the epilepsy-inspiring wipes between scenes (occuring every 4 seconds).
I am surprised the show has lasted this long. I realize it is difficult to made something as heady and uninteresting as stock options bold and sexy, but this show's approach is over the top. Its a nice experiment and exhibit in what not to do. A simple production redesign would save the show.... if its not too late.
This is a great show, would love to see it air as often as fast money. The strategies and discussions are excellent. They don't dumb it down too much, which is greatly appreciated and would really hurt the show if they did, imho. It would be even better if the traders would give a few more specifics on their trades, when deciding on volume, size of their transaction, and percentage of capital to risk, and why. Also, would be nice if the podcast was posted the same day as the show aired on cnbc - Fast Money has improved on their podcast posting turn time a TON.
