"Hedge Fund Market Wizards will be a modern day sequel to the highly successful Market Wizards and New Market Wizards written over 20 years ago. These two earlier volumes have become classics in the investment literature and have been read by virtually every hedge fund manager, as well as by a much broader lay audience. This new volume in the series will follow the same effective formula used by its predecessors. The book will devote a chapter to each of a broad array of highly successful traders, ranging widely in the markets they trade and their methodologies, but sharing in their achievement of superior performance. Each chapter, following the original format, will include an introductory section, a core section based on an interview with the trader, and a conclusion section that seeks to draw useful trading and investment lessons illustrated by the trader's approach and advice"--

The third in the bestselling Market Wizards series, this time focusing on the barometer of the economy—the stock market. It has been nearly a decade since the publication of the highly successful The New Market Wizards. The interim has witnessed the most dynamic bull market in US stock history, a collapse in commodity prices, dramatic failures in some of the world's leading hedge funds, the burst of the Internet bubble, a fall into recession and subsequent rumblings of recovery. Who have been the 'market wizards' during this tumultuous financial period? How did some traders manage to significantly outperform a stockmarket that during its heyday moved virtually straight up? This book will feature interviews with a variety of traders who achieved phenomenal financial success during the glory days of the Internet boom. In contrast with the first two Market Wizard books, which included traders from a broad financial spectrum—stocks, bonds, currencies and futures—this volume will focus on traders in the stockmarket.

Praise for THE NEW MARKET WIZARDS "Jack Schwager simply writes the best books about trading I've ever read. These interviews always give me a lot to think about. If you like learning about traders and trading, you'll find that reading this book is time well spent." -Richard Dennis, President, The Dennis Trading Group, Inc. "Jack Schwager's deep knowledge of the markets and his extensive network of personal contacts throughout the industry have set him apart as the definitive market chronicler of our age." -Ed Seykota "Very interesting indeed!" -John Train, author of The Money Masters "Successful trading demands longtime experience because it requires firsthand knowledge. If there is a shortcut to this requirement, however, it is in reading about the experiences of others. Jack Schwager's book provides that shortcut. If you find yourself sweating upon occasion as you read, then you're as close to the trading experience as you can get without actually doing it yourself." -Robert R. Prechter, Jr., editor, The Elliott Wave Theorist THE NEW MARKET WIZARDS Some traders distinguish themselves from the herd. These supertraders make millions of dollars-sometimes in hours-and consistently outperform their peers. As he did in his acclaimed national bestseller, Market Wizards, Jack Schwager interviews a host of these supertraders, spectacular winners whose success occurs across a spectrum of financial markets. These traders use different methods, but they all share an edge. How do they do it? What separates them from the others? What can they teach the average trader or investor? In The New Market Wizards, these wildly successful traders relate the financial strategies that have rocketed them to success, as well as the embarrassing losses that have proven them all too human. Meet the Wizards of Wall Street: * Stan Druckenmiller, who, as manager of the Soros Quantum Fund, realized an average annual return of more than 38 percent on assets ranging between $2.0 and $3.5 billion * William Eckhardt, a mathematician who, in collaboration with trader Richard Dennis, selected and trained the now-legendary circle known as the Turtles * Bill Lipschutz, a former architect who, for eight years, was Salomon Brothers' largest and most successful currency trader * Blair Hull, a one-time blackjack player who began an options trading company with Asking the questions that readers with an interest in the financial markets would love to pose to the financial superstars, and filled with candid appraisals, The New Market Wizards takes its place as a classic.

The Lifecycle Trade provides unique insight into the behavior of Super Growth Stocks starting with their initial public offerings (IPOs). Using extensive proprietary research, this practical guide contains never-before-published findings that provide revelatory statistics that can help you learn how to find big, winning stocks early. Full color charts and graphics for easy reference. "Which of the following statements are true? 1. 20% of IPOs gain 100% or more within their first year. 2. Over 90% of IPOs eventually trade below their first day low. They are both true! IPOs provide great opportunities, but they are also replete with severe drawdowns that can leave traders with net losses, even for those stocks that are eventual big winners. This succinct volume dispels some of the misconceptions about IPOs and should serve as a useful aid in navigating the treacherous waters of IPO trading and in formulating your own trading plan for these unique stocks." -Jack Schwager, Market Wizards, The New Market Wizards, Stock Market Wizards, Hedge Fund Market Wizards, The Little Book of Market Wizards, Market Sense and Nonsense, Schwager on Futures, Getting Started in Technical Analysis, Complete Guide to Mastering the Markets "As a career futures and forex trader, I have always been intrigued by growth stocks, but never developed the skill to identify the 10X or 20X winners. The Lifecycle Trade is the first book I have read that could help an equities trader gain that skill in a methodical and systematic way. Kudos to the authors for putting a bookend to the earlier works by Peter Lynch." -Peter Brandt, Diary of a Professional Commodity Trader, Trading Commodity Futures with Classical Chart Patterns "A fabulous read for anyone wanting to get an understanding of how to jump on a large, winning IPO and avoid getting ruined by Wall Street's pump-and-dump scheme, which can ruin the average investor." -Dan Zanger, Chartpattern.com, Momentum Masters "An important idea conveyed by Boboch, Donnelly, Krull, and Daill is that stocks follow a Lifecycle Pattern from IPO-infancy to maturation. Understanding where a stock is in its lifecycle provides important clues as to how to trade and invest." -Brett H. Steenbarger, Ph.D. Trading Psychology 2.0, The Daily Trading Coach, The Psychology of Trading, Enhancing Trader Performance, A Trader's Guide to Self-Discipline "After thirty years of managing money, this book has opened my eyes to new ideas and made me realize that there is always more to learn." -James Roppel, Founder and Managing Member, Roppel Capital Management "As a long-time growth stock advisor, I value research that is based in fact and proven through history to give you an edge. That's just what The Lifecycle Trade does. The team has performed exhaustive studies on how IPOs act after they come public, and they identify easy-to-understand patterns and guidelines to take advantage of that action. It's an eye-opener and sure to help any investor who wants in on new, exciting growth situations." -Mike Cintolo, Chief Analyst, Cabot Growth Investor and Cabot Top Ten Trader "The Lifecycle Trade is a great research tool for stock traders to add to their knowledge toolkit. One can always learn more about trading and the markets, and this book offers valuable guidelines. The selling points and rules are especially insightful since selling is usually the greatest challenge to the trader. I would suggest everyone read The Lifecycle Trade and expand their market research knowledge." -John Boik, Lessons From the Greatest Stock Traders of All Time, How Legendary Traders Made Millions, Monster Stocks
