    Compact Disc. Condition: new. Compact Disc. 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 80 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 Livermores mastery of the markets from the age of 14. 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 todays traders as it has those of generations past. 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 80 years later, it remains the most widely read, highly recommended investment book ever written.

    Soft cover. Condition: New. 1st Edition. Classic The Wall Street Journal A legend of Wall Street shares the tricks of his trade! Reminiscences of a Stock Operator is the bestselling story of Jesse Livermore or Boy Plunger -the famous American investor and security analyst who made his millions from the stock market. Edwin Lefevre tracks the exploits of Livermore as he won and lost tens of millions of dollars playing the stock and commodities markets during the early 1900s. With riveting accounts of Livermore s experiences as one of the most influential speculators on Wall Street, the book is rich with trading wisdom and rules that Livermore imparts through Lefevre. The book s enduring appeal rests in Livermore s view that the market is made up of people and the excesses of the market reflect mass psychology. According to him the mistakes of individuals are frequently the result of the inability to control fear and greed. Thus, the views and lessons of Livermore continue to be relevant to every new generation of investors and traders. This book is considered a classic in business writing.

    8vo. (8 1/8 x 5 3/4 inches). [viii], 299 pp. In light brown cloth. Cover blind stamped. Spine lettered in gilt. Ownership signature First edition, first issue Reminiscences of a Stock Operator is a semi-fictional biography that chronicles the life and experiences of one Larry Livingston, a thinly disguised portrait of the legendary trader Jesse Lauriston Livermore. The book offers a firsthand account of Livingston's journey from a humble speculator to a successful and respected stock operator during the early 20th century. Through Livingston's narrative, Lefèvre explores the psychological aspects of trading, market speculation, and the lessons learned from both successes and failures. Though the book presents itself as a fictionalized account through the character of Livingston, it profoundly echoes Livermore's real-life experiences and trading philosophy. The book's enduring legacy lies in its timeless wisdom about trading psychology, market dynamics, and risk management. It remains a must-read for those seeking insight into the mindset and strategies of a successful stock trader, with Jesse Livermore serving as the living inspiration behind the book's larger-than-life protagonist. Like Livermore himself, the book's allure endures, making it a classic of financial literature.

    First edition of this Wall Street classic. Octavo, original cloth. In very good condition with light wear. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. A nice example. 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. It tells the thinly disguised biography of Jesse Livermore, a remarkable character who first started speculating in New England bucket shops at the turn of the century. Livermore, who was banned from these shady operations because of his winning ways, soon moved to Wall Street where he made and lost his fortune several times over. What makes this book so valuable are the observations that Lefèvre records about investing, speculating, and the nature of the market itself. "A must-read classic for all investors, whether brand-new or experienced" (William O'Neil).
