JACOBS, William Oliver. The Stock Market Profile. How to Invest with the Primary Trend. West Nyack, New York: Parker, (1967). Folio (9 by 11 inches), original blue paper boards, printed endpapers, original dust jacket. $1100.
First edition of this desirable work on tracking the trends and profiting from market swings, with 34 illustrations (primarily graphs and charts) and 13 tables of historical data.
The Stock Market Profile offers a clear and concise plan for capital growth based on reading the investment climate. Jacobs argues that picking stocks is only half the battle. A wise investor has to be able to track the trends. Jacobs offers 13 technical indicators that, based on historical data, have proven themselves to be strong warnings of market change. By being aware that the market is about to turn, an investor can determine whether to buy or sell and take advantage of that knowledge for maximum profit or to protect the capital he or she already has. Through numerous charts, graphs, and tables, Jacobs shows how his Stock Market Profile technique offers an easy and foolproof way to maximize returns, no matter what sort of market one encounters.
