Modern-Day Baruchs, Livermores
Quick question for those of you who have read Bernard Baruch by James Grant or Reminiscences of A Stock Operator. Who do you think is most like these traders today? Off the top of my head, Stevie Cohen seems like the best candidate for a modern-day Livermore considering his "reading the tape" style and status as a trader's trader. However SAC itself is fairly institutionalized, in contrast with Livermore's career as a private speculator. Anyhow, just wanted to see what some people on this board thought.
