The author criticizes "Wall Street 2" movie director Oliver Stone for his poor choice of the movie's villain in a financial crash of 2008. He says that hedge fund managers did not cause the crash, but the volatility of prices and the wide gap between the opening and closing values of securities. He mentions that a survey by the Taab Group seems to show that dealers are becoming technical advisors to traders.
