9780066620596: Stock Market Wizards: Interviews with America's Top Stock Traders

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.

Review:

Newcomers to Jack Schwager's series on top traders, as well as fervent fans of his first two entries Market Wizards and The New Market Wizards, will find that Stock Market Wizards offers another revealing look at a wide spectrum of trading styles through the eyes of 15 extraordinarily successful individuals. Transcripts of incisive Q&A sessions between Schwager and traders--including Michael Lauer, Dana Galante, Alphonse "Buddy" Fletcher Jr., and Claudio Guazzoni--examine the ways each approaches their specialty, whether it be value stocks, mutual funds, short selling, options trading, or other market niches. After brief but interesting introductions that place the subjects' trading practices into perspective, Schwager coaxes from them penetrating observations on setting goals, finding opportunities, learning from mistakes, and operating on a day-to-day basis. While some participants refuse to divulge proprietary practices, and Anthony admits that many traders' activities hold little relevance to individual investors, the basic doctrines nonetheless contain nuggets of wisdom that can be applied by many nonprofessionals. And, in the final "Wizard Lessons" chapter, Schwager details the 65 overarching principles (such as Trade Your Personality, Be Willing to Take a Loss, and The Importance of Setting Goals) he culled from these extensive conversations. --Howard Rothman

From the Inside Flap:

Wouldn’t you love to sit down with some of the world’s most successful investors and find out how they do it? Just how do they make millions of dollars a year—or even in hours? And how do they come back from just as colossal losses?

Market expert Jack D. Schwager interviews some of the industry’s most successful traders, including:

MARK MINERVINI—a junior high school dropout who averaged a 220 percent annual return in five years, while keeping his maximum quarterly loss to a fraction of one percent.

MARK COOK—a Midwestern farmer who registered back-to-back annual gains of 563 and 322 percent in national trading contests.

STEVE LESCARBEAU—whose computerized model earns him an average of 70 percent per year with an incredibly low down of only 3 percent.

Shcwager asks the questions we want answers to—then pulls it all together and distills the essential advice and insights into a list of 64 invaluable market lessons for both novices and market professionals alike.

What Separates the World’s most successful investors from ordinary investors, and even the vast majority of professionals fund managers?

In the third book of the best-selling Market Wizard series, acclaimed trading expert Jack D. Schwager digs into the psyches, strategies, and true accounts of 12 legendary traders who survived the most dynamic bull market in U. S. stock history—as well as a collapse in commodity prices, dramatic failures in some of the world’s leading hedge funds, the burst of the internet bubble, and a fall into recession and the subsequent rumblings of recovery.

What lessons can the average trader or investor learn from these exceptional traders?

In lively interviews with his all-start lineup, Schwager brings you true stories, invaluable market lessons, and the inside scoop on how to ride the bull, battle the bear, and still come out on top.

Mr. Schwager is a recognized industry expert in futures and hedge funds and has written extensively on the futures industry and great traders in all financial markets. He is perhaps best known for his best-selling series of interviews with the greatest hedge fund managers of the last two decades: Market Wizards (1989), The New Market Wizards (1992) Stock Market Wizards is the most recent in the series.
