Stock Market Wizards:Interviews with America’s Top Stock Traders


Newcomers to Jack Schwager’s series on top traders,as well as fervent fans of his first two entries Market Wizards and The New Market Wizards,will find that Stock Market Wizards offers another revealing look at a wide spectrum of trading styles through the eyes of 15 extraordinarily successful individuals. Transcripts of incisive Q&A sessions between Schwager and traders-including Michael Lauer,Dana Galante,Alphonse “Buddy”Fletcher Jr.,and Claudio Guazzoni-examine the ways each approaches their specialty,whether it be value stocks,mutual funds,short selling,options trading,or other market niches. After brief but interesting introductions that place the subjects’trading practices into perspective,Schwager coaxes from them penetrating observations on setting goals,finding opportunities,learning from mistakes,and operating on a day-to-day basis.
