From the Publisher

The third in the bestselling Market Wizards series, this time focusing on the barometer of the economy—the stock market.

It has been nearly a decade since the publication of the highly successful The New Market Wizards. The interim has witnessed the most dynamic bull market in US stock history, a collapse in commodity prices, dramatic failures in some of the world's leading hedge funds, the burst of the Internet bubble, a fall into recession and subsequent rumblings of recovery. Who have been the 'market wizards' during this tumultuous financial period? How did some traders manage to significantly outperform a stockmarket that during its heyday moved virtually straight up?

This book will feature interviews with a variety of traders who achieved phenomenal financial success during the glory days of the Internet boom. In contrast with the first two Market Wizard books, which included traders from a broad financial spectrum—stocks, bonds, currencies and futures—this volume will focus on traders in the stockmarket.

On Thursday, the Dow has its tenth consecutive record closing in a row, at 20,810. This is happening, despite the fact that investors seemed terrified of a Trump presidency in the general election campaign. Trump came into office promising to antagonize America’s allies and economic

Living on 4 Percent—or Less

Ben Steverman The “4 percent rule” is a bedrock of retirement planning. But does it apply to those who quit working before 65? The rule of thumb holds that retirees who spend only 4 percent of their investment portfolio annually, adjusted for inflation, will be able to stretch out their savings for the rest of their life. For example, a $1 million brokerage account gets you $40,000 a year to spend. Lately, the 4 percent rule has been under assault, with experts warning that the future could bring weaker market returns, an increased life span, or both. “If you retire at 40 with a couple milli

Stocks To Keep A Nest Egg Growing

ALMOST NOTHING went the way it was supposed to in 2016. And yet, though many investors were wrong about the U.K.’s Brexit vote and the American presidential election, few ended up disappointed by their portfolios. Just before Thanksgiving, all four major U.S. stock market indexes closed at record highs—the first time that’s happened since 1999. If the year taught investors anything, it’s not to bet on predictions. As John Toohey, head of equities at USAA Investments, says of the unexpected outcomes, “You sort of question, ‘Is the market right, are the polls right, on anything?’ ” One predicti
