Your Favorite Market Wizard

  1. I'm a huge fan of Jack Schwager's Market Wizards books. Most successful traders have learned a great deal from these books.

    Who is your favorite market wizard, why?

    Perhaps Blair Hull :

    - began as a black jack card counter in Vegas.

    - Pioneer in algorythmic trading with Hull Trading Corp

    - Sold Hull Trading Corp to Goldman for big dough, started a new fund and a political career.
  3. I agree, I think he's one of the best!
  4. He may have derailed Obama if he weren't a wife beater.

    Baldwin and Dennis. They both started out undercapitalized, inexperienced and overconfident. Everybody does, don't they! For me, I felt their "paths" were the easiest to replicate. How wrong I was. :cool:
  5. Dennis is one of the best, isn't he. A true legend!!

    I know a lot of people have found Michael Covel's work on the turtle method very inspiring. I'm planning to get Covel's book to get a deeper understanding of how the turtle movement was born.
  6. Sushi


    he used to post on elite under the name pabst. Has some odd political ideas to say the least
  7. Larry Hite is a great one as well.

    He stresses how important it is to manage risk vs. knowing what market.

    He gives an example of a Coffee trader who knew everything about Coffee and ended up losing over a 100mil.

    Larry on the other hand just looked at it as risk per trade.
  8. Tom Baldwin and Paul Tudor Jones
  9. Bruce Kovner was my favorite, along with PTJ and Bill Lipschutz (sp?)
  10. No doubt, the coffee trader lost sleep over that one.
