Editorial Review - Book Description:


Even though this book was written way back in 1923, it can be of relevance to todays`s markets because every rule is based on practical mathematical laws. One thing that is very important here is the sample of annual forecasts which which has been presented. From these dates for highs and lows, one can carefully study them and learn certain cycles that appear in the market even to this present time. A very valuable work indeed!

Overkill on great ideas, March 12, 2000 BySamson Hedges (Tempe, AZ USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Truth of the Stock Tape: A Study of the Stock and Commodity Markets With Charts and Rules for Successful Trading and Investing (Hardcover) If you are a researcher of Gann you will probably be intersted in this book. It has 1 rule that isn't discussed in his other books. This rule tested over S&P 500 from 1950 to 1971 gives a 2% increase in annual return. The rule he describes involves finding tops but I went through and applied the rules to finding bottoms. The only thing I don't like about it is that it goes way overboard talking about the same thing over and over and over and over to the point I'm skipping over some of the examples. This made it a very boring book to read and he could have left much out and still got his point across.

ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS YOU CAN READ ON TRADING STOCKS, July 29, 1999 By A Customer This review is from: Truth of the Stock Tape: A Study of the Stock and Commodity Markets With Charts and Rules for Successful Trading and Investing (Hardcover) This is very easy to read yet highly informative! The amount of useful trading concepts is unbelievable for a book which was written so long ago. Despite its age it remains the single best stock market related book I have read. This book is the best book written by W.D. Gann. Jesse Livermore's book and Market Wizards are also highly recommended!

Glossy, February 19, 2011 BySteven J. Devney "Steve Devney" (Fairview, SD) - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Truth of the Stock Tape: A Study of the Stock and Commodity Markets With Charts and Rules for Successful Trading and Investing (Paperback) This is a very light book from William Gann. Other books that I have read by him are much deeper, and provide much better information. When I purchased this book, I also purchased How to Make Profits in Trading Commodities. That book is a much better buy, than Truth of the Stock Tape.
