Editorial Review - Book Description:

The trading strategies of legends Jesse Livermore, Bernard Baruch, Gerald Loeb, and more provide ways to triumph in the market

Today`s bookshelves are so laden with Johnny-come-lately experts, eager to sell their knowledge to any and all, that it`s sometimes hard for traders to know which way to turn or whom to trust. Lessons from the Greatest Stock Traders of All Time makes the choice simple, examining the careers of five traders--Jesse Livermore, Bernard Baruch, Gerald Loeb, Nicolas Darvas, and Bill O`Neil--who, more than any others over the past century, demonstrated tremendous success at conquering Wall Street.

This technique-filled book presents numerous ways in which the timeless strategies of these investing icons can be used to tame today`s high-speed, unforgiving marketplaces. Comparing and contrasting the successes--and occasional failures--of these five giants of finance, it reveals:

  • What Jesse Livermore did to correctly call every market break between 1917 and 1940
  • How Bill O`Neil stuck to basics to create his famously effective CANSLIM system
  • The strategies Nicolas Darvas used to become a self-made millionaire several times over

A readable and thorough introduction to fixed income markets, December 22, 2001 ByGastellguts "G." (Riverside, CT USA) - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Pricing Money: A Beginner's Guide to Money, Bonds, Futures and Swaps (Paperback) Extremely readable. One could read this book in a single sitting and get a great jumpstart to an understanding of fixed income markets - the why and the how.Wiseman has an engaging style of writing which prevents the stifled yawns normally associated with reading this genre, and keeps one turning the pages...The book nicely covers the fundamental theory of why there exists a fixed income market, then turns to the players and discusses what they do, and finally covers some of the fundamental trading strategies and math employed to turn a buck. Nice one...

i could not put this book down, December 10, 2001 By A Customer This review is from: Pricing Money: A Beginner's Guide to Money, Bonds, Futures and Swaps (Paperback) i found this book very well written. It provides detail and yet covers that what it says it does. I find that Wiseman explains concepts in a verystraight forward way. Although i had to pause to eat and think about some of the financial products discussed such as "par yields". I found I was able to understand the book. The book contains some of the trader jargon and a outline of the players involved in the market. I think that anyone who wants to something with securities or trading should read this, before/during/after an intership. As the english say "Wiseman" is the dogs ballocks!! get this book!
