Product Description

Product Description

Jesse Livermore was the greatest trader who ever lived.

He started trading at the age of fourteen.

He made his first fortune in the market panic of 1907 when he sold the markets short.

Over the years that followed, he built up a vast fortune trading in and out of the market right through the First World War and the 1920s.

Like every trader, he lost money as well as making it.

But over time, he always came out ahead.

His ability to time his trades was uncanny,

And his success funded a flamboyant lifestyle.

He owned a series of mansions around the world and married a Ziegfield follies showgirl. He was a the original rock-star trader, far more successful than any of today's hedge fund billionaires. Livermore even shorted the market before the 1929 crash - and came out even richer.

But what was the secret of his incredible success?

Shortly before he took his own life in 1940, Livermore wrote 'How To Trade In Stocks'.

The book distilled the wisdom of a lifetime of making - and sometimes losing - money.

In a terse, no nonsense style, he set our the rules of successful investing - rules that anyone with money in the markets can learn from.

The book mixes fascinating autobiographical and historical details with step-by-step guidance on:

Reading the market
Analyzing leading sectors
Timing your trades
Money management
Maintaining emotional control

It is the one book on investment that everyone should read.

This e-book edition includes an introduction by Martin Vander Weyer, city columnist for The Spectator.

Endeavour Press is the UK's leading independent publisher of digital books.

The Success Secrets of a Stock Market Legend

Jesse Livermore was a loner, an individualist-and the most successful stock trader who ever lived. Written shortly before his death in 1940, How to Trade Stocks offered traders their first account of that famously tight-lipped operator's trading system. Written in Livermore's inimitable, no-nonsense style, it interweaves fascinating autobiographical and historical details with step-by-step guidance on:

  • Reading market and stock behaviors
  • Analyzing leading sectors
  • Market timing
  • Money management
  • Emotional control

In this new edition of that classic, trader and top Livermore expert Richard Smitten sheds new light on Jesse Livermore's philosophy and methods. Drawing on Livermore's private papers and interviews with his family, Smitten provides priceless insights into the Livermore trading formula, along with tips on how to combine it with contemporary charting techniques. Also included is the Livermore Market Key, the first and still one of the most accurate methods of tracking and recording market patterns
