  1. If you could choose to work and learn from anyone you want who would you prefer?

    Paul Tudor Jones, or maybe Marty Schwartz, or Victor Niederhoffer, or Ed Seykota, George Soros?

    I have to confess that I would like to spend some time with Niederhoffer. I have read his books and I have found him very interesting.
  2. Cheese


    None of them.
    If you are follower, forget trading.
    Master the market and you master yourself.
    Laissez Faire likes this.
  3. i need a shrink, so i chose seykota lol
  4. fxscalper with areyoukidding a close second.
  5. Hugh Hefner

    He flips bitches like its nothing and carries multi Blue Chips.
  6. Tudor hands down with Livermore a close second.

    The nice thing is that I was mentored by a partner/student/friend of Tudor so I like to think that I am very close to his style (not skill level thats for certain) but definetely his style.
  7. LOL

  8. none of the above. bob bright is the one i would like to spend some time with.


    The NYSE-listed equities market has always been his sandbox (he dislikes Nasdaq market makers), though he dabbles in futures an doptions, mostly equity indices. Lately, he has been employing a pairs-trading strategy. "He's thrilled over the NYSE merging with ArcaEx – it's a big win for prop trading," says his brother, Don. When he's not trading, Bright scours the Strip for a baccarat table from which he hasn't been banned. He also owns Bugsy Siegel's 1933 Packard limousine.
    Estimated income: $15 - $20 million
  9. By far, I'd choose Steven Cohen of SAC Capital, and then Eddie Lampert.
    Look in this months Fortune magazine, and see how much money they are worth.
    Steven Cohen started with $200 of bar mitzvah money.
  10. Gator

    Excellent choice and he should be on the list.
