Catching Up With The “Market Wizards”

In his two classic books ‘Market Wizards” and “The New Market Wizards,” Jack Schwager interviewed some the greatest traders of our time.  These were followed up with his “Godfather 3″ type of book “Stock Market Wizards,” notable mostly for the interview with Steve Cohen.  Here is what some of the “Market Wizards” are up to lately.
