"Cock-a-doodle-doo, you sneaky post-it sucker." Ivan's innocent game of secretly sticking yellow notes with stock tips all over the big investment bank is over. A senior trader catches him red-handed and pulls him out of the stuffy research department into the buzz of the dealing room. To Ivan, the market is one big game. He is a true number cruncher, surfing the waves of the stock market. As he rakes in big profits for the bank, he moves into a fancy apartment towering above the financial city. But all is not well. As Ivan rapidly becomes the most successful trader in town, he feels increasingly alienated from himself and the world around him.And as the world economy begins to crumble, Ivan still goes on winning in the dealing room. In spite of his unprecedented success Ivan has to get out. Before it's too late.
