About this Item

FIRST US EDITION. 144 pages, size 8.5 inches tall by 5.75 inches, with an index.' This unique over-the-counter guide is the first lucid, understandable, and practical treatise on the workings of America's largest marketplace-the over-the-counter stock market. Nicolas Darvas is more than a successful investor and stock-market observer. He embarked in 1968 on a clinical study of the price action and make-up inside the over-the-counter market. And this book is a result of his findings. Nicolas Darvas not only reports on the techniques, strategies, and maneuvers of OTC professionals, but he also presents a highly readable-and extremely cogent-series of suggestions that investors-small and large can apply to their future stock-market approach. Mr. Darvas first discovered the potential for profits in the over-the-counter market when he made a killing in Bruce. Never before has any Wall Street professional or student of the market compiled as useful and meaningful a book about the over-the-counter market. Here you will see-probably for the first time-the following: How to dispose of a big block of OTC stock without disturbing the market How to acquire a large portion in an unlisted stock without running the price up How to profit-with leverage-in government debt instruments, puts and calls, and margin trading : How to beat the shell game; When to buy and sell the hot stocks; How to make fortunes from penny stocks; The truth about mutual funds; Over-the-counter dynamics and much more. Every investor will find this book not only a valuable reference and guidebook but also one of the most entertaining reports ever written on a mysterious section of stock-market trading. NICOLAS DARVAS, author of How I Made $2 Million in the Stock Market, considers that Wall Street is nothing ; more than a huge gambling casino, bristling with dealers, croupiers and touts, as he explains in his highly successful second book, Wall Street: The Other Las Vegas. Until a few years ago, Mr. Darvas was one half of the internationally acclaimed dance team, Darvas and Julia. Now that he has devoted himself to the world of finance, he appears to be a human computer, who invariably knows what not to do to keep one step ahead of Wall Street stock market manipulations. Hungarian by birth, Mr. Darvas trained as an economist at the University of Budapest. Reluctant to remain in Hungary until either the Nazis or the Russians took over, he fled at the age of 23 with a forged exit visa and fifty pounds sterling to stove off hunger in Constantinople, Turkey. Some time later, he met Julia, who be came his partner in a dancing team that was to become one of the most successful acts in Europe and the United States. Growing restless with his dancing career, Niicolas felt the need to put his head to work as well as his feet; so without knowing a "put and call" from a bump and grind, he made a timid step into Wall "Street. In a dazzling 18-month sortie in the stock market, using his "Box System," he made more than $2,000,000. His first best seller, How I Made $2 Million in the Stock Market, which will be the basis of a forthcoming Broadway musical, had such a devastating effect on the market, that the rules of the Stock Exchange had to be revised. His most recent book, Wall Street: The Other Las Vegas, put him at the top of the most hated list of every stockbroker in the country. An international traveller, Mr. Darvas maintains apartments at The Dorchester in London and The George V in Paris, but his heart belongs to Wall Street.
