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.

Sometimes they get one anyway. Included in the Russell 2000 Index, a benchmark for small-company shares, is a little-known Chinese stock whose price went supernova for no apparent reason.

ETFs Are Hot. So’s 3D Printing. … I Got An Idea!

Annie Massa As the sun sets over New York Harbor on a clear October evening, a party is in full swing on the 31st floor of a skyscraper a few blocks from Wall Street. The view from the floor-to-ceiling windows is partially obstructed by a 4-foot-tall, 120-pound 3D-printed jet-black bull. Hollow on the inside, the bull is a gift to Ark Investment Management from the host of the celebration, exchange operator Bats Global Markets. In July, Ark launched an exchange-traded fund, listed on Bats under the ticker PRNT, that holds the stocks of companies in the 3D-printing industry. The 3D Printing

Trying to Make Active Funds Cool Again

Rachel Evans and Annie Massa • Will investors flock to new funds that look more like ETFs? • “Active ETFs unnecessarily blur the lines” Daniel McCabe, chief executive officer of Precidian Investments, is trying to create a new kind of fund, one he thinks will help active money managers survive the unrelenting rise of exchange-traded funds. It’s been an uphill battle. With $10 trillion in assets in the U.S., actively managed mutual funds are big business, but they’re losing market share. For years investor money has been flowing into ETFs, most of which passively replicate market indexes. I
