With new commentary and Insights on the life and times of Jesse Livermore

Reminiscences of a Stock Operator is the fictionalized biography of perhaps the most famous financial speculator of all time-Jesse Livermore. This annotated edition bridges the gap between Edwin Lefevre's fictionalized account of Livermore's life and the actual, historical events, places, and people that populate the book. It also describes the variety of trading approaches Livermore used throughout his life and analyzes his psychological development as a trader and the lessons gained through hard experiences.

  • Analyzes legendary trader Jesse Livermore's strategies and explains how they can be used in today's markets
  • Provides factual details regarding the actual companies Livermore traded in and the people who helped/hindered him along the way
  • Explains the structure and mechanics of the Livermore-era markets, including the bucket shops and the commodity exchanges
  • Includes more than 100 pages of new material

Reminiscences of a Stock Operator has endured over 70 years because traders and investors continue to find lessons from Livermore's experiences that they can apply to their own trading. This annotated edition will continue the trend.
