Ed Seykota has always kept a low profile. If it weren’t for Jack Schwager’s Market Wizards books, chances are I wouldn’t be writing this post.. He began his trading career in the s, when he was hired by a major brokerage firm. Ed Seykota turned $5, into $15,, over a 12 years in a client account and was heavily influenced by another great trend follower - Richard Donchian. He was a pioneer in terms of developing technical computerised trading systems and as a money manager, has a great long term performance.
Michael Covel and Ed Seykota. After you enter the world of markets and investing, you will eventually run across the book Market Wizards, by Jack remokop.ml all the trader interviews in Market Wizards, the most memorable is the one with Ed remokop.ml some may perceive Seykota’s manner as extremely direct, most will agree Seykota is unique in the way he thinks. Seykota is a trader who in pioneered a computerized trading system (now known as Trading System) for the futures market for the brokerage house he and Michael Marcus were working for. Later, he decided to venture out on his own and manage a few of his client's accounts.
