Timothy Sykes turned $12,000 of Bar Mitzvah gift money into $1.65 million by trading thousands of stocks from 1999 to 2002. He managed the number-one Short Bias Hedge Fund from 2003 to 2006, starred in the television documentary Wall Street Warriors, and appeared regularly on CNBC - all before the age of 26. It's been a wild ride.
This Rocky-like story is the first realistic look at the world of stock trading and hedge funds. It will educate and inspire everyone.
"There's certainly a dash of Holden Caulfield to Sykes, but there's at least an equal part Larry Livingston, the trader in Edwin LeFevre's classic Reminiscences of a Stock Operator." ( Dow Jones Newswire)
"A clearly written account of a natural trader coming of age, a Catcher in the Rye for traders. Highly recommended if you want to be or understand a trader." (Aaron C. Brown, Executive Director at Morgan Stanley and author of The Poker Face of Wall Street)
