I saw the news item on Trader Vic Sperandeo (whose 1st book I have) getting involved in a commodities fund startup. Got me to thinking & reminiscing... Has anyone met, dealt with, or traded with any of Schwager's Market Wizards (or those of similar trading/investing caliber, you decide)? Please only share non-confidential info As for myself, Schwager's books got me interested in a trading career way back in the mid 90's. I in fact tried to contact Schwager himself (he was running his CTA at the time, and I talked to him on the phone for a few minutes - control your enthusiasm, I know...) I also tried to contact Trader Vic (no dice) and Marty Schwartz. Funny thing is, the closest I got to Marty was a reporter who once did a Barron's article on him. The reporter was kind of bitter about Marty - I don't know why - and warned me not to bother. Anyway, Marty if you're reading this, loved your book (and Vic too). But I was a young punk at the time so can understand why I was not exactly a high priority for them to contact. Sorry to be such a suckup but for me these guys were like rock stars when I started getting obsessed by trading. As another story that will show that I was a bit nuts, when I was on a drive near Mt. Kisco in NY State I tried to convince my wife that we should try to drive by Michael Steinhardt's house. But it was on a hard to find road on another side of a reservoir, I think... Enough about me - please share your "I met (or attempted to meet) a Market Wizard."
