Recommended by Sam Sieden and Bill Henner of Online Trading Academy. Glad I bought it.
To get the full benefit, it is necessary to read from beginning to end. What strikes me most is both the depth and breadth covered by the interviews. The book is divided into several segments, covering futures, equities, investors who follow economy-wide trends, and a little bit of psychological analysis. The key to learning from this book is linking the ideas from all the separate interviews together.
By the end, you will see subtle differences in the thinking behind futures, equities, and even stock option trading. Despite the various traders having a wide range of opinions and philosophies, you will find many commonalities in each interview. Though each trader used radically different methods, they all had a standardized set of rules that were followed and led to success. Most of these rules involved some benchmark for cutting losses.
Interestingly enough, this book is not written or condensed in anyway. It consists of outright transcripts of interviews Schwager conducted with the actual traders. I believe this style kept each page exciting because it actually felt as if I was present during the interview.
This is one of the essential reads for any young or old person wanting to engage the trading field, whether as a part time endeavor or as a career. Study Market Wizards, and use the wisdom of its pages to your money-making advantage!
"Reminiscences..." is mentioned in several of the interviews with the "Wizards", so it is no surprise that many of the same themes are echoed throughout the book. Chronicled are anecdotes and philosophies from some of the world's greatest traders, and to have them all gathered for the reader in one place is amazingly stimulating. More than any other book, "Market Wizards" has helped me become a profitable trader. Investors routinely pay hundreds, even thousands of dollars to attend trading seminars, but don't learn nearly as much readers will soak up from these pages. I make a habit to go back and regularly review the collection of tips in the back of the book, and nothing helps me break out of a trading slump like rereading a few select chapters.
For those looking for a step-by-step trading system, you may be disappointed, but if you're interested in learning from the best of the best, then there's no other choice. The interview format makes for a quick read, and it's interesting to get a glimpse of how these great men live and trade. I highly recommend "Market Wizards" and its sequel "The New Market Wizards" to anyone wanting to take the next step toward trading success.
