Learn from the greats how to net big profits in bull, bear and non-trending markets alike

Legendary stock trader William O'Neil once described the stock market as "a maddeningly contrary beast." For him, the greatest traders are those who move with the market and not against it. In How Legendary Traders Made Millions, award-winning investment author and historian John Boik tells you how O'Neil and other legendary traders rode "the beast" to fortune through booms and busts alike--and how you can too.

Boik profiles eight of the greatest traders of all time, focusing on the historic trades and strategies behind the legends. With the help of exclusive Investor's Business Daily charts and data, he explores, decade by decade, how the market behaved over the past century, and how each trader took advantage of distinct market situations. And he gives you the specifics on dozens of important trades, described against the backdrop of the economic, political, and market environments in which each trader's strategy flourished.

Learn from the likes of Bernard Baruch, Jesse Livermore, Gerald Loeb, Richard Wyckoff, and Jim Roppel how to:

  • Use historical patters to read today's market cycles

  • Predict individual stock performance based on emerging trends

  • Spot key pivot points in market tops and bottoms

  • Discover the best time to buy individual stocks based on emerging trends

  • Know when to sell stocks to lock in profits

The first book to put the strategies of history's top traders in one place, How Legendary Traders Made Millions is your guide to riding the beast to outstanding profits.

    Great Read and Investment Education

    Read about how the "great ones" did it. There is certainly a pattern to the successful traders both in how they succeeded and also how they failed. Only a few key rules to follow that appear in each legendary trader's profile. These are all you need to succeed.
