Sintesi dell'editore

Most investors do not get involved in speculation or commodities, but speculators play a vital function in financial markets by absorbing and managing risk. Technical traders practically ignore business results within specific companies, instead focusing on broad market indicators such as price trends, trading volume, and rate of change in major stock-market averages.

The Secrets of the Great Investors series is a collection of presentations that explain, in understandable language, the strategies, tactics, and principles that have produced great wealth, and how you can improve your financial future. History's greatest investors used powerful investing philosophies to produce superior results, and you can learn from their successes and mistakes.

Hopelessly outdated

The only redeeming feature of this work is to somehow believe that once traders had to draw their own charts by hand, and could not even think of the possibility of executing a trade within a second.

Wow, how did anyone do it?

Out of date and not worth the time.

The information is so outdated and so many things are related to not having computers that it is not worth your time.

WORTH A SECOND LISTEN

I've been a stock trader for a number of years and I found a lot of basic truths, that even experienced traders, should be reminded of from time to time. At about an hour in length, this is a very efficient way to remind oneself.

Very valuable!

A must hear - more than once! - whether one deals in commodity futures or not.

The realistic assumption of earning 'only' 20-30% p.a. on one's capital and having to expect more losing trades than winning trades overall, may discourage novices. This might be a good thing.

Options are not quite as bad as indicated by several authors. Naturally, option writers have advantages over option buyers as ~75% of options expire worthless. However, these two strategies are rather different. I recommend looking at this rather underrated book by Kevin Kerr: A Maniac Commodity Trader's Guide To Making A Fortune: A Not-So-Crazy Roadmap to Riches.

It would be wonderful if Kevin Kerr's book were available not only as CD, but also as an Audible version. I own a hard copy.

Both publications added to my skills and I substantially improved my trading.

The reason why I gave this audio's performance only 4 stars: Too much time is wasted in between the various 'chapters'.

fun piece of history

It's a history lesson. Not an how to trade book as some seem to think in the reviews.
They are great short story's from traders in the old days.

If you have time and are wise

I believe knowing story makes you better at everything you do. This is merely a book to understand where we come from and the market.

Very good as an ultra short presentation.

Read Jack Schwager for more on the same, he just doesn't go into the beginnings.
