hey Joe

I thought about you and your posts the other day. I've got a great book for you. It's called Reminiscences of a Stock Operator and it's by Edwin Lefèvre.

one of the more important investment books ever written, the material first appeared in the 1920s as a series of articles and illustrations in the Saturday Evening Post. You track Jesse Livermore as he won and lost tens of millions of dollars playing the stock and commodities markets during the early 1900s. He was one of the original chart men (if you didn't know). At one point, he made 10 million dollars in just one month of trading!

It was originally published as a fictionalized account. If you get the Illustrated Edition from J Wiley, it combines the Saturday Evening Post's original illustrations with LeFevre's (Livermore's) investment advice (for traders), recreating the look, feel, and message that was first published more than 80 years ago. Its one of the most compelling and enduring pieces ever written on trading

great book if you like that sort of thing
