For fundamentalists, "Market Wizards" is the more appropriate book to peruse. My favorite section in the book is "A Little Bit of Everything" where views of long-term investors are discussed at length. The longest write-ups in part one of the series, perhaps purposely so, are also the most useful as interviewees proffered their tricks of their trades with great candor - Michael Marcus (42 pages), James Rogers (38), Bruce Kovner (34), Michael Steinhardt (26). Other concise but equally useful comments were aired by David Ryan (20 - and check out the wealth of investment/trading books mentioned in the interview) and William O'Neill (18).
"The New Market Wizards" is in broad terms a general rehash of ideas propounded in the first book, except that it was more geared toward trading styles than investment techniques, plus the myriad traders highlighted were newer to the game at the penning of the book and in this sense their views less impressive/thought-provoking compared to its prequel where the most legendary / creme de la creme were handpicked to go into the definitive book.Read more ›
A key thing you will learn from these interviews is best exemplified by Mike Carr a Turtle: Don't care what the market will do, Care what you will do when the market does it.
The gem in this series is Warren Eckhardt. In the first book the Ritchie Dennis & Will O'Neil interviews were the real gems. The others in vol#1 were totally without value including the GREAT Ed Seykota who is just a wise-acre with flippant answers and a juvenile sense of humour. Here in volume 2 even minor traders have more to say, perhaps Jack got better in getting information out of them?
Anyhow, remember more than HALF of these people have since gone the way of Livermore and blown up and those that haven't are RETIRED and teach at high costs.
We novices who have ever dreamed about becoming a full time investor or just wanted to know how these financial wizards do it, have in this book further proof that fortunes can be made given enough discipline, patience, and sheer stamina.
Each interviewee explains how they place trades, what they look for, and when they exit. The 4 tenets that come up over and over again is: 1) Follow the Trend 2) Cut your losses short 3) Let your profits run 4) Manage risk.
One thing each professional points out is the sheer naivette of the inexperienced trader or investor who comes into the tumultuous financial jungle expecting to make 50 to 100% a year. They are undercapitalized and inexperienced but most importantly do not know themselves.
This is a fantastic book if you want to know how the best of the best tackle our financial markets
