Welcome to the world of Martin "Buzzy" Schwartz, Champion Trader--the man whose nerves of steel and killer instinct in the canyons of Wall Street earned him the well-deserved name "Pit Bull." This is the true story of how Schwartz became the best of the best, of the people and places he discovered along the way and of the trader's tricks and techniques he used to make his millions. Writing with great verve and style, Schwartz makes us a part of the action as we follow his career from his first gut-wrenching day trading options on the American Stock Exchange to his enormous successes trading futures, his pursuit of secretive foreign money for his hedge fund, the night he spent trading bonds during the Golf War (in that first tumultuous night, he made $1.2 million by dawn), and the often painful yet valuable personal lessons he learned the hard way. It's a high-pressure, high-stakes world rarely seen by outsiders and rarely written about by its inhabitants. Here, fortunes are made and lost in moments, and nobody brings it to life better than Marty Schwartz, the man "Barron's" calls "the best there is." His stories are irresistable, and his candid accounts of his smart moves and blunders alike are priceless. Appended to each chapter are fascinating "lessons" Schwartz has learned about the financial markets--where you'll learn about the attitude, style and strategies that make Schwartz a winner. For the real nuts and bolts, turn to the end of the book and plunge into "The Pit Bull's Guide to Successful Trading, " a manual covering Schwartz' favorite trading methods, market analysis tools and indicators. Whether you want to play the markets yourself, are curious about how thebuccaneer traders of Wall Street make (and lose) their money or simply want to be entertained by a rollicking good story, "Pit Bull" is a book you won't want to miss.
