SUMMARY: I am writing a book based on interviews with full-time (or largely full-time) private investors and traders in the UK. I am posting here to try to attract more interviewees. If you think you might be prepared to be interviewed, please reply below or email me through my profile or PM me. UK only please. DETAILS: This is not a âhow-toâ book or a âget-rich-quickâ book, but more of a journalistic profile of the working methods and lifestyles of a few people who trade their own money. Analogies among books currently in print might be Jack Schwagerâs Market Wizards books, or John Trainâs Money Masters books, but my book is about private investors rather than pros. Another difference from Market Wizards and Money Masters is that in my book **all interviewees are anonymised.** Each interviewee is identified by a single (disguised) name (âHughâ, âNeilâ, âJanetâ, etc). Home towns, previous careers, family details and other information are also changed or left vague. The interviewees need to be people who spend much of their time on trading or investment, and have done so for at least say 5 years. You donât have to be wildly successful or well-known. People who make a modest living quietly doing their own thing are especially interesting. I donât need (and wonât ask for) any detailed information about portfolio size, investment returns or other personal financial details. The criterion for inclusion is simply that interviewees claim (in a way which I find reasonably credible) to make a living from their strategies. There is a fuller description of the book here http://tinyurl.com/mutfd9 And a sample chapter on the first interviewee âHughâ is here http://tinyurl.com/lqzwyk I am not a journalist, I am a full-time investor myself, and have been for the past ten years. So hopefully the interview will be more of a fun discussion, rather than a series of uninformed standard questions. What do the interviewees get out of it? Well, as just mentioned, most find the interview enjoyable. Iâm also willing to make a donation to a charity of your choice in lieu of payment for your time. If youâre interested, please reply below or email me through my profile or PM me. UK only please.
