Market Beaters by Art Collins


The concept of interviewing successful traders is not new. The twist with this book is that he is asking some good questions and getting great answers that I have not seen from the other books. It is not a utility book per se. I recommend it if you can get it at a discount.

Book Information

Market Beaters
Written by Art Collins

The book is a series of interviews on many heavy weight figures who research/trade/design mechanical systems.

Unlike other books on system trading that deals with the basics on system design, Market Beaters focuses on questioning the individuals,

– how do they get to where they are now as a fund manager / trader / designer
– how do they maintain their trading models
– how do they discover their edges
– how do they overcome various obstacles related to trading

Overall a good book for someone who has at least some understanding of what trading systems are.

Personally I think it is a must read for anyone who would like to pursuit trading with mechanical systems.

Art has an on-going thread at that posts his daily bias on various trading instruments. Could be an interesting starting point for those interested in developing their own trading models.
