Top 6 Movies About Financial Markets [List]

Movies about financial markets
I am a self-proclaimed movie buff and like to watch movies (all genre) since young. Since this blog is about Stock Investment and there are quite a number of movies related to financial markets (mostly are related to Wall Street) which I thought worth sharing.
Just like to clarify that I didn't watch all the movies that I am about to share but if you are into movies and have not watch them, can consider going to library to loan them or watch it online. Also, the list below are not in any particular order but personally my preference it #1 and #6.

    The movie clearly showed the ups(luxury+freedom+power) and downs(how greed change people) of having a lot of money.
