Some clear instructions from the mind of a great. Take no notice of the 'include's the Livermore market key' although useful it is difficult to use and resembles a high momentum strategy.

6) Technical analysis works because it is measures volatility.
7) A break out to a record high is more significant than a breakout to a 20 day high.
8) When adding to winning positions buy less than your previous amount like a pyramid.

Amazing book - Livermore has helped me pay my university fees.

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic book, 9 Jan 2010

Defintely agree with D L Anderton. This book should be read and read again.

Another review commented that Livermore's strategy is nothing more than momentum trading. To an extent it is but I beleive there are other key nuggets of information in this book that will help you refine your investment strategy, particularly around Pivotal Points.

Well worth buying this book, plenty of practical advice.

Some clear instructions from the mind of a great. Take no notice of the 'include's the Livermore market key' although useful it is difficult to use and resembles a high momentum strategy. The start of this book is fantastic and worth the price alone. The authors interpretation later is hardly an interpretation and more a rehash of Livermore's personal papers and is purely puff which adds little extra. If you really want to get more of a feel for Livermore's technique than Reminscence of A Stock Operator gives then this gives a better indication - just read the personal papers and skip the guff.

This review is from: How to Trade In Stocks (Paperback)
You need to read this book a couple of times to really understand its message. Its concepts are simple, application is hard. Stop looking for the magic key to investing which will do all the hard work for you. Too many investors are looking to find the perfect trading system so they can become rich over night. You have to spend years watching the stock market and not a few days to begin to gain any usefull knowledge. If I could pass on any advice to new investors, it would be to read this book and William J Oniels How to make money in stocks, and then get ready for a few years of hard graft before you start to see consistant results. Just don't give up, you will get there, I did!

4.0 out of 5 stars A worthwhile book for all traders- excellent value, 9 May 2013
This review is from: How To Trade In Stocks (Kindle Edition)
This book really is the go-to book for traders and investors. It's a great guide to reading the market, and how to time your trades without panicking. As well as being packed full of useful tips with well explained and illustrated examples, this book is an excellent insight into the man himself. It humanises the man that we all look up to as one of the greatest traders that ever lived, by showing his flaws and losses and explaining how he built upon these to create success.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars for Livermore, 2 stars for the Smitten., 13 Oct 2012

This review is from: How to Trade In Stocks (Paperback)
I'll keep this short.

The first third of the the book written by Jesse Livermore contains enough value to warrant the purchase of this book. Livermore's accounts and advice are quite possibly the best material available to a trader today, it really is that good. The material after Livermores contribution is poor overall, I do feel bad writing this as Smitten has done us a favour here putting Livermores material in his book but with respect to the chapters Smitten wrote in comparison to the Livermore material... I imagine it's comparable to reading how to make money in oil by J.D. Rockefeller and then reading how to make money in oil by a reporter who studied J.D. Rockefeller.

There are a number of 'focused' investors/ speculators who beat the markets. Jesse Livermore is certainly one of those although the method he used WITHOUT the use of a computer is amazing!

5.0 out of 5 stars Livermore - the legend, 26 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: How To Trade In Stocks (Kindle Edition)
I have been following the financial markets for many years and this contains a lot to keep even experiences traders occupied. Livermore made and lost several fortunes and used all of the mistakes to hone his trading style. There are several key lessons: 1) wait for the trade - don't rush it. 2) Build your position in stages. 3) Exit quickly if prices move against you. 4) Don't average losers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Clear, sound, practical advice, 9 May 2013
This review is from: How To Trade In Stocks (Kindle Edition)
If you want a magic and easy solution to investing, this isn't going to be the book for you. Although the strategies he outlines are clear and simple, there are no cheats here and it will be hard work to implement- but worth it. It makes clear what is usually an incredibly complex and confusing subject. It is also a great insight into Jesse Livermore with some brilliant anecdotes from his life.

A horse's mouth account from another era.

Jesse's words have enduring appeal and value.

I'd recommend this book to any experienced investor, trader or speculator - it could change the way you do things forever.
