Never got around to writing a review of this one, but you're talking about three tape-reading books in a hundred years. This may not be an absolutely essential book, but it's easy and interesting and he may just put something in a way that makes sense to you that didn't make sense before.
The Three Steps to Successful Stock Trading. New 1970 edition of the classic about the mechanics of stock trading with a recent foreword by the author. Historically, the best selling book on the subject, Neill tells not only how to read the tape, but also how to reason out what's happening behind the scenes. Superb chapters on human nature and speculation. Figures and charts. Originally published in 1931.
About the Author
Humphrey Neill, the celebrated sage of Saxton's River, Vermont, has inspired generations of contrarians. His advice to investors: Beware of the crowd, don't be swept up by euphoria or down by despair. When everyone thinks alike, watch out. They're probably wrong. Neill's sharp thinking and homespun aphorisms are no less appropriate today than when he began to formulate the theory of contrary opinion three quarters of a century ago. In fact, Neill's ideas formed the basis for the Contra Fund that Fidelity Management established in 1967 and still manages today.
