Aaron Fifield interviews: Linda Raschke

This week on the show I interviewed Linda Raschke – an active trader since 1981, when she started out on the floor of the Pacific Coast Stock Exchange as an options market maker.

In 1992, Jack Schwager interviewed Linda for his second installment of the Market Wizard series; The New Market Wizards.

Since then, Linda has traded for several hedge funds, and in 2002 she began one of her own – which has been ranked 17th out of 4,500 hedge funds for ‘Best 5 Year Performance’ by BarclaysHedge.
