Book Description :

The Market Wizards are back! Unknown Market Wizards continues in the three-decade tradition of the hugely popular Market Wizards series, interviewing exceptionally successful traders to learn how they achieved their extraordinary performance results. The twist in Unknown Market Wizards is that the featured traders are individuals trading their own accounts. They are unknown to the investment world. Despite their anonymity, these traders have achieved performance records that rival, if not surpass, the best professional managers. Some of the stories include: - A trader who turned an initial account of $2,500 into $50 million. - A trader who achieved an average annual return of 337% over a 13-year period. - A trader who made tens of millions using a unique approach that employed neither fundamental nor technical analysis. - A former advertising executive who used classical chart analysis to achieve a 58% average annual return over a 27-year trading span. - A promising junior tennis player in the UK who abandoned his quest for a professional sporting career for trading and generated a nine-year track record with an average annual return just under 300%. World-renowned author and trading expert Jack D. Schwager is our guide. His trademark knowledgeable and sensitive interview style encourages the Wizards to reveal the fascinating details of their training, experience, tactics, strategies, and their best and worst trades. There are dashes of humour and revelations about the human side of trading throughout. The result is an engrossing new collection of trading wisdom, brimming with insights that can help all traders improve their outcomes.

Book Description :

Praise for THE NEW MARKET WIZARDS "Jack Schwager simply writes the best books about trading I've ever read. These interviews always give me a lot to think about. If you like learning about traders and trading, you'll find that reading this book is time well spent." -Richard Dennis, President, The Dennis Trading Group, Inc. "Jack Schwager's deep knowledge of the markets and his extensive network of personal contacts throughout the industry have set him apart as the definitive market chronicler of our age." -Ed Seykota "Very interesting indeed!" -John Train, author of The Money Masters "Successful trading demands longtime experience because it requires firsthand knowledge. If there is a shortcut to this requirement, however, it is in reading about the experiences of others. Jack Schwager's book provides that shortcut. If you find yourself sweating upon occasion as you read, then you're as close to the trading experience as you can get without actually doing it yourself." -Robert R. Prechter, Jr., editor, The Elliott Wave Theorist THE NEW MARKET WIZARDS Some traders distinguish themselves from the herd. These supertraders make millions of dollars-sometimes in hours-and consistently outperform their peers. As he did in his acclaimed national bestseller, Market Wizards, Jack Schwager interviews a host of these supertraders, spectacular winners whose success occurs across a spectrum of financial markets. These traders use different methods, but they all share an edge. How do they do it? What separates them from the others? What can they teach the average trader or investor? In The New Market Wizards, these wildly successful traders relate the financial strategies that have rocketed them to success, as well as the embarrassing losses that have proven them all too human. Meet the Wizards of Wall Street: * Stan Druckenmiller, who, as manager of the Soros Quantum Fund, realized an average annual return of more than 38 percent on assets ranging between $2.0 and $3.5 billion * William Eckhardt, a mathematician who, in collaboration with trader Richard Dennis, selected and trained the now-legendary circle known as the Turtles * Bill Lipschutz, a former architect who, for eight years, was Salomon Brothers' largest and most successful currency trader * Blair Hull, a one-time blackjack player who began an options trading company with Asking the questions that readers with an interest in the financial markets would love to pose to the financial superstars, and filled with candid appraisals, The New Market Wizards takes its place as a classic.

Book Description :

"Hedge Fund Market Wizards will be a modern day sequel to the highly successful Market Wizards and New Market Wizards written over 20 years ago. These two earlier volumes have become classics in the investment literature and have been read by virtually every hedge fund manager, as well as by a much broader lay audience. This new volume in the series will follow the same effective formula used by its predecessors. The book will devote a chapter to each of a broad array of highly successful traders, ranging widely in the markets they trade and their methodologies, but sharing in their achievement of superior performance. Each chapter, following the original format, will include an introductory section, a core section based on an interview with the trader, and a conclusion section that seeks to draw useful trading and investment lessons illustrated by the trader's approach and advice"--

Book Description :

The third in the bestselling Market Wizards series, this time focusing on the barometer of the economy—the stock market. It has been nearly a decade since the publication of the highly successful The New Market Wizards. The interim has witnessed the most dynamic bull market in US stock history, a collapse in commodity prices, dramatic failures in some of the world's leading hedge funds, the burst of the Internet bubble, a fall into recession and subsequent rumblings of recovery. Who have been the 'market wizards' during this tumultuous financial period? How did some traders manage to significantly outperform a stockmarket that during its heyday moved virtually straight up? This book will feature interviews with a variety of traders who achieved phenomenal financial success during the glory days of the Internet boom. In contrast with the first two Market Wizard books, which included traders from a broad financial spectrum—stocks, bonds, currencies and futures—this volume will focus on traders in the stockmarket.

Book Description :

Bestselling author, Jack Schwager, challenges the assumptionsat the core of investment theory and practice and exposes commoninvestor mistakes, missteps, myths, and misreads When it comes to investment models and theories of how marketswork, convenience usually trumps reality. The simple fact is thatmany revered investment theories and market models are flatlywrong—that is, if we insist that they work in the real world.Unfounded assumptions, erroneous theories, unrealistic models,cognitive biases, emotional foibles, and unsubstantiated beliefsall combine to lead investors astray—professionals as well asnovices. In this engaging new book, Jack Schwager, bestsellingauthor of Market Wizards and The New Market Wizards,takes aim at the most perniciously pervasive academic precepts,money management canards, market myths and investor errors. Like somany ducks in a shooting gallery, Schwager picks them off, one at atime, revealing the truth about many of the fallacious assumptions,theories, and beliefs at the core of investment theory andpractice. A compilation of the most insidious, fundamental investmenterrors the author has observed over his long and distinguishedcareer in the markets Brings to light the fallacies underlying many widely heldacademic precepts, professional money management methodologies, andinvestment behaviors A sobering dose of real-world insight for investmentprofessionals and a highly readable source of information andguidance for general readers interested in investment, trading, andfinance Spans both traditional and alternative investment classes,covering both basic and advanced topics As in his best-selling Market Wizard series, Schwagermanages the trick of covering material that is pertinent toprofessionals, yet writing in a style that is clear and accessibleto the layman
