Market Wizards – and their lesser known cohorts: Jack Schwager hits the book launch circuit
Great excitement regarding the STA’s speaker at November ‘s monthly meeting (18:30 Tuesday 10th November – via webinar). As STA Treasurer Karen Jones pointed out: ‘’we always line up great speakers but have out-done ourselves this time’’.
We’re talking about Jack D Schwager, who modestly describes himself as ‘Author and portfolio manager. Current focus: construction and management of portfolio of futures and FX managed accounts.’ Meanwhile the publisher of the latest in the series of Market Wizards (going strong since 1989), Harriman House, has a bit more to say about him and his latest book. I quote from the jacket text: ‘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.’
His most recent book ‘Unknown Market Wizards’, to be published on the 3rd November, has interviews with a series of private individuals trading their own money, and who are largely unknown to the professional investing community. These include a trader who turned an initial account of $2,500 into $50 million and, one STA members will like, a former advertising executive who used classical chart analysis to achieve a 58% average annual return over a 27-year trading span.
As in the book, the webinar will take the form of an interview with Steven Goldstein, host of the AlphaMind podcast. I’m confident that it will be as good as what they say about the book: ‘the result is an engrossing new collection of trading wisdom, brimming with insights that can help all traders improve their outcomes’.
