I could not be sadder for my friend and his family but always being optimistic in love and life I am Bullish on the outlook for the investment community and the hedge fund industry he loved so much. Marty was unable to appear at a major event last year due to surgery and has been secluded for many years. His legendary work on the put call ratio and never ending love of historical precedents , sentiment and especially the tape seperated him from all before him. He lived the life of a hard working family man that loved his work that amassed him millions in profits and trillions for investors worldwide whom followed his advice or his managed accounts. He recently donated $1 million dollars to cancer research and with his second wife he continued giving til passing this weekend. His life was about giving and sharing…no one could be so kind to partners to office staff and all those that met him found him not only intellectually brilliant but homespun street smart. Early in life he got the nickname “Trader Horn” as he trade his way through dicey markets always looking for a edge without the use of super computers he was a Blue Chip stock trader early in life and that led to his career in market forecasting and timing. I will be forever grateful for the time and experience and the constant quotes from Jesse Livermore that reminded him of the risk and profits that can be amassed in the markets. It is with a heavy heart I write this story after my last on Marty led so many to riches and our life without “Marty” will be empty for a bit but the key to Legends is their legacy lives on and their followers will trust in the methods that led them to the most profitable investor of our time. Thank You ! You had a “decent” ride that will never be forgotten.
With Great Sadness ,
