Market Maven

What it is:

A market maven is a person who keeps abreast of market news and is a successful investor.

How it works (Example):

A market maven is someone who conscientiously absorbs information and news about the financial markets on a continuous basis. A market maven's acumen is reflected in his extraordinary investment success. Warren Buffett is a classic example of a market maven.

Why it Matters:

A market maven's success is not contingent on a flawless investing record. Market mavens become successful through experience and over time accumulate significantly more market gains than losses.
