The Little Book of Market Wizards: Lessons from the Greatest Traders Little Books. The book will have strong appeal to three main audiences; those managing capital professionally, those evaluating professional money managers, and those readers who want to manage their own money more effectively.
The fact that markets and the money management industry have gone through tumultuous change makes the central message of the book all the more powerful Those ingredients, an appreciation for the balance of risk versus reward in a trade, discipline, adaptability, an open mind, and intellectual honesty that enables one to learn from mistakes, come to life in Schwager’s riveting interviews with a number of managers. The characters’ stories highlight their very different personalities and lifestyles and are interesting in and of themselves.
But it is Schwager’s unique ability to illustrate their winning strategies and interweave their personal backgrounds and emotional highs and lows that makes Hedge Fund Market Wizards both a highly entertaining read and learning experience. What most jumps out at the reader is how radically different styles and approaches all share the common traits mentioned above.
By exemplifying these traits in a number of managers with seemingly different investment philosophies, whether it be short term vs. By highlighting their differences, the common thread of their similarities is much more evident. Schwager reinforces the message with succinct summaries of what these commonalities are throughout the book.

And since then a lot of developments have occurred in the financial markets, including the rapid evolution of hedge funds. This 4th sequel of market wizards shows how far the industry has evolved.
The wizards interviewed in the book are more technical, discussing more complex methods of trading, in an environment very different than the previous interviews. Like the previous Market Wizards books, heedge indeed just like in the market, the trading methods or philosophy applied by the wizards could not be more different from one another. Some even directly contradict one another, with surprisingly good results for each of them. This, of course, remains the underlying message of the Wlzards Wizards books: If you hang around me, you will observe what I do, and you may pick up some good habits.
But there are a lot of things you will want to do differently. First and foremost, they’re all very dilligent about risk management, minimizing risk is almost the most sacred part of each one of these traders.
They also trade only the size they’re comfortable with. To them the schwagger is always right, Steve Clark commented that the market is not about facts but people’s opinion and positions that reflects their opinions, and they aren’t afraid to cut losses when they’re wrong.
In a similar tone, Scott Ramsey said that there is one principle that you cannot violate: Moreover, Jamie Mai highlighted that finding answers is much easier when you know in advance what the questions are, and another wizard gives the simplest wisdom of all when he said do what you do best, and so less of what you do badly.
Furthermore, as different as they may be, almost all of them point out the fact that profit is nice but it wont teach us anything, and one of the most important parts of trading is to make as much mistakes as we can, learn from them, and create our own system to avoid those mistakes. And the interviews in this book provide us with exactly that, the raw and honest stories about their hopes, fears, and doubts, and their struggle and journey from nothing to become one of the best in the world.
An absolutely useful real-life manual for the battle on the financial market ground. Every trader wannabe should read and study the whole collection of Market Wizards. The reason is simple. Marker paragraph in any of these interviews has the potential to spark a light in your head that could not only affect your trading style but also change your life forever.
And even if that does not happen, the mental exercise you go through as you read these interviews is invaluable. That, to a great or full extent, is thanks to the author and his ability to conduct very thorough interviews. This particular edition is good because it is rather new compared to the other versions.
I would recommend this, as well as all the other books that are part of the collection, to any person who is considering starting a career as a trader.
There are not many books out there that provide the wide range of strategies presented here. Then, use that knowledge to look for other books that explore that strategy in detail. Once they have done all that, they should come back and re read the wizards to extract the real gems. No matter what strategy you end up following, you should always keep these books close as an hedgee reference. One person marekt this helpful. To be honest, I did not like the “new market wizards” which in my opinion was done based on the success of the first book.
But this one is far enough apart to contain a new generation of traders.
