THE NEW MARKET WIZARDS
Conversations With America's Top Traders
By Jack Schwager       
Price: $19.95

DESCRIPTION

(From The Jacket) - 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--some largely unknown--relate the financial strategies that have rocketed them to success, as well as the embarrassing losses that have proven them all too human.

Here are some of the personalities featured in The New Market Wizards:

  • Gil Blake, a virtually unknown fund timer who over a twelve-year period realized a 45 percent annual return and was profitable in an astounding 134 out of 139 months.
  • Bill Lipschutz, an architect who became Salomon Brothers' most successful currency trader, sometimes trading single positions as large as several billion dollars.
  • Blair Hull, a former blackjack player who used his knowledge of probability theory to transform a $1 million starting stake into an option trading company with one hundred employees that has garnered cumulative net profits in excess of $90 million.
  • William Eckhardt, the little-known mathematician and trader who collaborated with Richard Dennis in developing trading systems and helping train the group of traders who collectively became known as the Turtles.
  • Stanley Druckenmiller, who manages a multi-billion-dollar fund and has realized an average annual return of 45 percent since the mid-1980s by utilizing an eclectic investment approach that incorporates positions in the bond, currency, and futures markets (in addition to traditional long stock positions) while also permitting short selling in all these markets.
  • Richard Driehaus, whose fund has beaten the Russell Index by a better than 2:1 ratio since 1980 and by a 6:1 ratio measured in terms of cumulative return.

Asking the questions that readers with an interest or involvement in the financial markets would love to pose to the financial superstars, Schwager gets the financial wizards of Wall Street--and Main Street--to share their insights and their "war stories." Entertaining, informative, and invaluable, The New Market Wizards is destined to become another Schwager classic.
