Publisher's Summary

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Hopelessly outdated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Out of date and not worth the time.

The information is so outdated and so many things are related to not having computers that it is not worth your time.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