Book Reviews: Market Wizards Series By Jack D. Schwager

I have been thinking for a while on starting my book review series and here comes the first one. I am going to try to point to books which I find most useful in improving my understanding of the markets and most interesting and fun to read.

My first review will be a short one and it will be on books that offer unique insight on life, thinking and trading of the most successful investors, speculators and money managers here all called traders.

Markets wizards is a series of three books written by Jack D. Schwager. It’s a series of interviews author conducts with the U.S. most successful traders covering trading in probably every available financial instruments and employing various trading styles and strategies.

The traders are picked by their (provable) track record which gives the books bullet-proof credibility. The traders interviewed are so diverse that the insight is offered to unique and different routes to success.

Full Disclaimer: I have bought these three books with my own money and I have not been encouraged in any way to do this review .

    You actually make it seem really easy with your presentation however I find this matter to be really one thing which I think I would by no means understand. It seems too complicated and very extensive for me. I am taking a look ahead in your next publish, I will attempt to get the grasp of it!
