In this episode of the Trading Justice Podcast, we welcome Jack Schwager for a discussion on trading, writing and the current state of the markets. He studied economics from Brooklyn College and Brown University receiving an MA and BA in those fields in the early ’70s then moving into the Futures markets as a researcher which led to his first publication in 1984 “The Complete Guide to the Futures Market”.
Mr. Schwager is most famous for his writing and publishing of “The New Market Wizards” series with the first of the series coming out in 1989 where he interviews some of the greatest traders in the world. He’s written extensively regarding trading futures, hedge funds and conducted interviews of the great trader’s through his books. Matt talks to Jack about some of the characteristics of the markets in the ’80s when he first published the book versus today in 2019. Listen in to hear from one of the greats in our industry and a very knowledgeable trader and author.
