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

Review: How to Trade in Stocks

User Review  - Ed Ball - Goodreads

A Classic! Jesse Livermore's contribution to investors the world over was "The Pivotal Point." The point in the chart where a confirmation for a new trend has begun. Jesse stated: "I never benefited much from a move if I did not get in at somewhere near the beginning of that move." Read full review
