I see a nice batch of posters who cite Dan Zanger is being a great and successful trader. (The World Record Holder, LOL) Dan Zanger should not be praised and be included within the trading elite as his alpha is challenging to measure. Zanger made his stake in a bull market. Zanger used maximum leverage increasing his return. With the bull market and leverage variables and his inability to repeat past success in a bear or range trading market, I would not put an undeserved premium on Dan Zanger. No disprect to him, but the best traders are able to generate alpha consistently which Zanger has and is not able to do.
