First published in 1923, Reminiscences of a Stock Operator is the most widely read, highly recommended investment book ever. Generations of readers have found that it has more to teach them about markets and people than years of experience. This is a timeless tale that will enrich your life?and your portfolio.
Facsimile of 1923 Edition. First published in 1923, Reminiscences is a fictionalized account of the life of the securities trader Jesse Livermore. Despite the book's age, it continues to offer insights into the art of trading and speculation. In Jack Schwager's Market Wizards, Reminiscences is quoted as a major source of stock trading learning material for experienced and new traders by many of the traders who Schwager interviewed. The book tells the story of Livermore's progression from day trading in the then so-called "New England bucket shops," to market speculator, market maker, and market manipulator, and finally to Wall Street where he made and lost his fortune several times over. Along the way, Livermore learns many lessons, which he happily shares with the reader. The book is considered an investment classic.
These are no ordinary reminiscences a Wall Street broker—these are, according to many readers, the personal tales of legendary trader Jesse Livermore, the man often blamed for the stock market crash of 1929.
Written by American journalist, writer, and diplomat EDWIN LEFÈVRE (1871–1943), Livermore recounts his rise from quotation-board boy to master of the market. He tells of speculation and excitement, bad deals and blown fortunes. He offers advice that's still relevant today and recalls stories that educate readers more vividly and memorably than any textbook. He explains his theory of the market and how it can be played and exploited for gain. Overall, his stories explain what makes a stock operator tick, and why trading will always fascinate those who strive to conquer it.
Reminiscences of a Stock Operator—The Story of Jesse Livermore, Wall Street's Legendary Investor is one of the most important investment books ever written and a must-read for investors, traders, and students of economic history.
For the first time, these two works attributed to the great Jesse Livermore are presented together in one volume with a new foreword by Juliette Rogers. Both contain interesting insights into Livermore's life and times as well as the reasons for his success. They remain classics and must reads for every new aspirant in the world of speculation.
The two books in this volume were written in the early 1920s, when Livermore was already famous but still ascending to the peak of his wealth. The nightmare of World War I was fading, and the United States had successfully transitioned from a wartime economy into a peacetime powerhouse. Americans became enamored of cars, telephones, radios, and movies. A newfound fascination with celebrities extended beyond film stars and athletes to the rich and powerful. People wanted to know how Wall Street wizards like Jesse Livermore spun their magic.
The first book, Reminiscences of a Stock Operator by Edwin Lefèvre, offers keen insight while at the same time adding to the Livermore enigma. Reminiscences is the first-person narrative of a fictional speculator named Larry Livingston, whose life events happen to match precisely those of Jesse Livermore. As a financial journalist, biographer, and novelist, Edwin Lefèvre gave his readers their much-desired glimpse into the lofty world of Wall Street elites. He wrote eight other books, but none matched the success of Reminiscences, which has remained in print since 1923 and been translated into numerous languages. Even the understated former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan once called it "a font of investing wisdom."
In true Livermore fashion, the book itself remains something of a mystery. Specifically, over the decades many readers have wondered if the book's author was not Lefèvre, but none other than Jesse Livermore. The two men were long acquainted and may have traded useful information over the years. A 1967 biography claims that Livermore, shortly before his death, acknowledged writing Reminiscences with guidance from Lefèvre, who served as "editor and coach." This revelation came to the biographer secondhand and without confirmation, so the mystery continues. However, attentive readers may note the narrator's especially gleeful tone whenever windfalls are made or old scores are settled, suggesting a connection more personal than professional.
In the years following these publications, Livermore continued to burnish his legend. A 1924 run-up in wheat prices squeezed him out of $3 million, but the following year he recovered his losses and added tremendous profit when the wheat market collapsed. Of course, in this era of modest regulation, markets were vulnerable to manipulation and Livermore--by now nicknamed the "Great Bear of Wall Street"--did not eschew such tactics.
Larry Livingstone tiene una rara habilidad para prever el comportamiento de las cotizaciones de la Bolsa y el ansia de un especulador compulsivo. A los 15 aÑos gana sus primeros 1.000 dÓlares apostando a la Bolsa en el Boston de finales del siglo XIX. Pero su mÉtodo no vale en la Bolsa de Nueva York, donde, con incombustible tozudez se arruina y enriquece sucesivamente.
Una fascinante mezcla de novela histÓrica, econÓmica y biogrÁfica, dÓnde aritmÉtica, dinero y dolce vita son lo mismo. Memorias de un operador de bolsa parte de una docena de artÍculos publicados por el periodista y escritor Edwin Lefevre en el Saturday Evening Post y narra en primera persona de vida de un operador de bolsa, basando su historia en el maestro de las finanzas Jesse Livermore.
