Martin S. Schwartz
Martin S. Schwartz (Buzzy, born March 23, 1945) is a Wall Street trader who made his fortune successfully trading stocks, futures and options. He received national attention when he won the U.S. Investing Championship in 1984. Schwartz is the author of Pit Bull: Lessons from Wall Street's Champion Day Trader.
Schwartz served in the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves from 1968–73 and completed his commitment with rank of Captain. After working several years as a financial analyst at E. F. Hutton, Schwartz accumulated $100,000, quit the firm, and bought a seat on the American Stock Exchange where he began trading stocks options and futures.
In 1985, Schwartz began his own fund in which he would manage other people's money as well as his own. He wrote the book Pit Bull: Lessons from Wall Street's Champion Day Trader, based on that professional life.
