Jesse Livermore : World's Greatest Stock Trader, Paperback / softback Book

Jesse Livermore : World's Greatest Stock Trader Paperback / softback

Part of the Wiley Investment series


"An excellent read." -Ace Greenberg, Chairman, Bear Stearns Richard Smitten's Jesse Livermore is the first full biography of the legendary trader profiled in the bestselling Reminiscences of a Stock Operator (Wiley: 0-471-05970-6).

Although he died more than half a century ago, Livermore is considered by today's top traders as the greatest trader who ever lived.

An enigmatic loner, misanthrope, and notorious miser, Livermore revolutionized the profession with his innovative timing techniques, money management strategies, and high-momentum approach to trading stocks.

Smitten provides a vivid portrait of Livermore and the times in which he lived and operated.

He deftly combines eyewitness accounts of those who knew Livermore with fascinating stories of sensational love affairs, shootings, and suicides, and a detailed exploration of the trading strategies that made Livermore several fortunes in his lifetime.

Richard Smitten (Key West, FL) is the author of several books, including The Godmother, the critically acclaimed story of a famous woman criminal.
