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 best seller, 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.
A sampling of the traders you will meet in The New Market Wizards:
- 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 and $3.5 billion.
- William Eckhardt, a mathematician who, in collaboration with trader Richard Dennis, selected and trained the now legendary circle of traders 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 onetime blackjack player who founded a highly successful options trading company.
Asking the questions that listeners with 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.
