Jesse Livermore is one of the most famous (and infamous) traders of all time. In his classic (written under a pen name) Reminiscences of a Stock Operator, he tells his story of how he became a successful trader. Livermore’s focus on price and human nature made him a pioneer in both technical analysis and trading psychology. In this week’s edition of Trading Simplified, Dave begins a series of videos delving into the wisdom of Livermore, drawing mostly from Reminiscences. He also fills in some background information to help you understand Mr. Livermore’s trials and tribulations. Further, as an active trader, he discusses how the information is just as timely today as it was over 100 years ago.
