  • Market Wizards review

    Market Wizards is a book written by Jack Schwager and originally published in 1989. The book takes a very unique approach by interviewing several different well known and not so well known traders and investors of the time.

    I first learned of Market Wizards when I was still a brand new trader. I wanted to get my hands on any reading materials that would help me navigate the difficult financial markets. After doing a basic Google search for the best stock market books I came across a few lists of the best Wall Street books and I noticed a peculiar occurrence. Every list had different but books on it but there was always one constant. Market Wizards. Market Wizards was on every list that I found so I knew I had to buy it.

    This book is by far my favorite finance publication. Over the years I have read and re-read it a number of times. A lot of the concepts I apply in my trading were borrowed from traders in this book. The main principle I got from this book was treating stock picking like a treasure hunt. I have applied that principle for years and it has made me money year after year. If you treat stock picking like a treasure hunt and realize you want quality over quantity you are one step closer to success in the markets. Every Friday night I start with a list of a least a few hundred stocks and narrow those down to possible five or ten potential trades for the upcoming week. Of those five or ten I MIGHT buy one or two during the week.

    This book is a great way to get into the minds of millionaire traders and investors. A few of the people interviewed in this book have even gone on to reach billionaire status via hedge fund management.

    Some of the traders interviewed include
    • Michael Marcus
    • Bruce Kovner
    • Marty Schwartz
    • Paul Tudor Jones

    Overall, I would give this book 5 stars for its creative format and unmatched insight into the world of trading and investing

    Stock Market Investing For Beginners

    "Step into the arena and hold on to your hat. Don't get discouraged if you don't make 8 trillion dollars in your first month. Trading is not a get rich quick scheme. Realize that trading is a skill and just like any other skill it takes time to learn. Have convictions in your decisions in life and trading. Ignore the comments and "advice" of those that have never traded a day in their life."
