Publisher's Summary

The market wizards are back!  

Unknown Market Wizards continues in the three-decade tradition of the hugely popular Market Wizards series, interviewing exceptionally successful traders to learn how they achieved their extraordinary performance results.  

The twist in Unknown Market Wizards is that the featured traders are individuals trading their own accounts. They are unknown to the investment world. Despite their anonymity, these traders have achieved performance records that rival, if not surpass, the best professional managers.  

Some of the stories include:  

  • A trader who turned an initial account of $2,500 into $50 million. 
  • A trader who achieved an average annual return of 337 percent over a 13-year period. 
  • A trader who made tens of millions using a unique approach that employed neither fundamental nor technical analysis. 
  • A former advertising executive who used classical chart analysis to achieve a 58 percent average annual return over a 27-year trading span. 
  • A promising junior tennis player in the UK who abandoned his quest for a professional sporting career for trading and generated a nine-year track record with an average annual return just under 300 percent.  

World-renowned author and trading expert Jack D. Schwager is our guide. His trademark knowledgeable and sensitive interview style encourages the wizards to reveal the fascinating details of their training, experience, tactics, strategies, and their best and worst trades. There are dashes of humor and revelations about the human side of trading throughout.  

The result is a engrossing new collection of trading wisdom, brimming with insights that can help all traders improve their outcomes.

The usual market wizards fare

if you are a retail trader or aspiring to be one and have enjoyed the books in the market wizard series by this author- you will likely not be disappointed with this book. Traders interviewed are based out of US and Europe. All are males. I finished listening to the audio version during my daily walks. I plan to selectively read the Kindle version. In the past I have read/listened repeatedly to the authors books- will do so the same with this one.

Another amazing book to add to the series!

I finished it in two days, couldn’t put it down. I read the market wizards, new market wizards and hedge fund market wizards yearly. This one will be added to the list. If you make anymore great books I’m only going to be able to read market wizards books ;).

a must read for a budding trader ...

I have always liked markets wizards books as they present the wisdom of professional in a nutshell. this particular book is very interesting to me as I can personally relate to the traders profiled here which was somewhat difficult in the previous books.. this books doesn't teaches how to trade but it focus on much more importance part risk management and psycology.. all in all 10/10 for a budding trader...

Great book, great narrator.

This is one of my favourite trading books. Being modern and having a selection of traders from the UK featured, I was able to relate very well with companies mentioned. Trader mistakes being discussed and how they overcame them is very inspirational. The narrator is top notch too, the way he changes his tone and accent for each person being interviewed helps with keeping my attention throughout the interviews.

Great book but the narrator's accents are terrible

4 stars because of the American narrator trying to do a British accent. Why? It really grates on me and get's in the way of the great stories.
