Angas, the author of this 1936 bestseller, was a British major dubbed "the flamboyant toast of Wall Street" of the 1930s and 1940s. Though he included two chapters on technical market analysis, he advocated probability-based rules on market movements, the normal business cycle, long-run strategy, short- term tactics, and typical market behavior rather than dogmatically following mathematically worked out cycles.
