Overview

Unknown to most modern-day investors and traders who cherish Reminiscences of a Stock Operator as one of the most important investment books ever written, the material first appeared in the 1920s as a series of articles and illustrations in the Saturday Evening Post.

You'll track the exploits of Jesse Livermore as he won and lost tens of millions of dollars playing the stock and commodities markets during the early 1900s. At one point, he made the then astronomical sum of 10 million dollars in just one month of trading!

'Reminiscence's 1923 copyright ran out a long time ago. In the early 80's Wells Wilder invited me to meet the legendary trader Stanley Kroll in Los Angeles. Stanley had quotes from Reminiscence all over the place. Stanley emphasized the lessons Livermore learned from Partridge in the 5th chapter of the book. Here is where Kroll learned how to make consistent profits trading commodities. It was Kroll's who resurrected the long out of print scrolls. In any case Jack Schwager did a Napoleon Hill of commodities traders. Jack asked the traders. The majority said 'Reminiscences,' was influential in there trading. It is no surprise that all the old timers claimed to read the same stuff! What I find about trading for a living is that there is really no one you can share your experience with without having him or her influence your trading. One thing is for sure, whoever wrote 'Reminiscences,' knew an awful lot about the development of Jesse's trading philosophy. Reminiscences does not delve into chart reading or technical analyses. It was before that. Livermore's genius is that Reminiscences lives today eighty years later, as a 'traders mind mirror.' 'Reminiscences,' echoes back your own thoughts reflected off of the mind of one of America's greatest securities traders. If you are new to the path or have lost your way, or just need a re-entry from a trading break. Reminiscences unfolds the philosophical foundation underlying 'a way of life as a trader.' No matter what your level of trading experience, if you are still alive 'Reminiscences of a stock Operator,' has something to offer you.
