Reminiscences of a Stock Operator

Edwin Lefèvre

Reminiscences of a Stock Operator is a fictionalized story based on the trading career of Jesse Livermore. It follows his journey from the age of 15 when he made his first $1,000 to becoming a Wall Street legend. See how he learned the ins and outs of trading the hard way while losing his fortune and then making it all back. Decades after its original publication, readers are still getting tremendous value from Livermore's experience.

This updated edition includes bonus chapters that reveal the exact methods that Jessie Livermore used to make millions in the stock market. These chapters were based on a series of interviews conducted by top financial writer Richard D. Wyckoff and include extensive quotes from Livermore. Some of the topics he discusses include: how to identify what kinds of stocks to buy and when, the psychology of trading and how to get into a winning mindset, building a solid investment strategy that doesn't rely on trick or fads.
