From the Back Cover
First published in 1923, Reminiscences of a Stock Operator is the fictionalized biography of Jesse Livermore, one of the greatest speculators who ever lived. Now, more than eighty years later, it remains the most widely read, highly recommended investment book ever written. Generations of investors have found that it has more to teach them about themselves and other investors than years of experience in the market. They have also discovered that its trading advice and keen analyses of market price movements ring as true today as in 1923.
Jesse Livermore won and lost tens of millions of dollars playing the stock and commodities markets during the early 1900s. So potent a market force was he in his day that, in 1929, he was widely believed to be the man responsible for causing the Crash.
Originally reviewed in the New York Times as a nonfiction book, Reminiscences of a Stock Operator vividly recounts Livermore's mastery of the markets from the age of fourteen. Always good at figures, he learns, early on, that he can predict which way the numbers will go. Starting out with an investment of five dollars, he amasses a fortune by his early twenties and establishes himself as a major player on the Street. Bullish in bear markets, and bearish among bulls, he claims that only suckers gamble on the market. The trick, he advises, is to protect yourself by balancing your investments, and selling big on the way down. Livermore goes broke three times, but he comes back each time feeling richer for the learning experience.
Offering profound insights into the motivations, attitudes, and feelings shared by every investor, Reminiscences of a Stock Operator is a timeless instructional tale that will enrich the lives?and the portfolios?of today's traders as it has those of generations past.

Even somebody interested in equity market should read this. Fast paced, humorous and thought provoking.
Very exciting and a must read for every trader it is not a guide to the stock markets but it does help a lot in understanding what is really happening behind the "ticker tape".
Top international reviews
i am unsure if his approach would work today - against the algorythms and black boxes, but it is a great historical account. the main points he makes about being a successful trader are all internal - be in control of yourself, leave emotion at the door, if you have a strategy stick to it, don't take advice from anyone - as their advice willsuit their personality and most important of all cut your losses...
It is written in a easily understood 'street-smart' style and must be regarded as one of the most entertaining and meaningful books ever penned about financial markets.
Yes I agree it does teach a great deal of lessons every trader should know but it does it on the back of such outdated techniques it became laboursome and frustrating to read.
It talks also alot about behind the scenes in the wallstreet and so the stock markets. And alot about the psychology of the trading and the traders, the loosers (which he calls suckers, including himself in certain times too) and the winners.
Easy reading too.
Have a nice time,
Subject is something I’m interested in, interesting good and a quirky read. Markets traders brokers and tipsters somethings don’t change....!
