One of the foremost investment classics of all time Jesse Livermore won and lost tens of millions of dollars playing the stock and commodities markets during the early 1900s - at one point making the then astronomical amount of ten million dollars in just one month of trading. So potent a market force was he in his day that Livermore was widely believed to be the man responsible for causing the Crash of 1929. Reminiscences of a Stock Operator - the fictionalized biography of one of the greatest speculators who ever lived - vividly recounts Livermore’s mastery of the markets from age fourteen. Now, more than 80 years later, Reminiscences remains one of the most widely read, highly recommended investment books ever written. Offering profound insights into the motivations, attitudes, and feelings shared by every investor, 'Reminiscences of a Stock Operator' is a timeless investment classic that will enrich the lives - and portfolios - of today’s traders.
