Jack Schwager is a recognized industry expert in futures and hedge funds and the author of a number of widely acclaimed financial books. His experience includes 22 years as director of futures research for some of Wall Street’s leading firms and 10 years as the co-principal of a commodity trading advisory firm.

Schwager has written extensively on the futures industry and great traders in all financial markets. He is perhaps best known for his best-selling series of interviews with the greatest traders and hedge fund managers of the last two decades: Market Wizards (1989), The New Market Wizards (1992), Stock Market Wizards (2001) and Hedge Fund Market Wizards (2012).

Schwager’s first book, A Complete Guide to the Futures Markets (1984) is considered to be one of the classic reference works in the field. He later revised and expanded this original work into the three-volume series, Schwager on Futures, consisting of Fundamental Analysis (1995), Technical Analysis (1996), and Managed Trading (1996). He is also the author of Getting Started in Technical Analysis (1999), part of John Wiley’s popular Getting Started series.

Schwager is a frequent seminar speaker and has lectured on a range of analytical topics including the characteristics of great traders, investment fallacies, hedge fund portfolios, managed accounts, technical analysis, and trading system evaluation. He holds a BA in Economics from Brooklyn College (1970) and an MA in Economics from Brown University (1971).
