Editor's Pick

Financial services company Etrade makes the colorful lingo of the finance world digestible -- and a lot of fun -- with this whimsical series of animated videos, created out of agency SS+K and production company Mass Market.

Terms like Dead Cat Bounce, Alligator Spread, Cockroach Theory, Bagel Land and Stalking Horse Bid and Living Dead come to life in the funny films, which will help to make even the most clueless investors sound like they know what they're talking about. Check out the full series on the Etrade site.
