"STOCKS ARE SELF-FORECASTING. THEY TELL THEIR OWN STORY": FIRST EDITION OF BURTON PUGH'S BETTER WAY TO MAKE MONEY, 1939
PUGH, Burton H. A Better Way to Make Money. A Simple and Practical Plan of Investing and Trading in the Stock and Grain Markets. New York: Ronald Press, (1939). Octavo, original teal cloth, original dust jacket. $1250.
First edition, advance review copy, of Pugh's classic work that crafted his "Triple Zone System" for trading in either the stock market or wheat market, in original dust jacket.
Written by the author and editor of numerous books on outsmarting the market, Better Way to Make Money offers a common-sense yet inventive approach to profiting in the stock market. Here Pugh suggests that there is no point to tracking the correct movement of the market, but rather that the only correct market movement is that which results from action of the masses—the so-called "mass mind." Accordingly, he proposes that a smart investor should learn to read the highs and lows and find the spaces in between. That approach will, he explains, allow the investor a way to predict stocks using nothing more than the behavior of a stock itself or, if one prefers, wheat, a commodity Pugh believes behaves identically to the stock market. To that end, Pugh offers his "Triple Zone System" as an easy way to interpret stocks and plan investment. First edition, first printing: advance review copy with publisher's notice tipped-to front pastedown.
Text fresh; front inner paper hinge expertly reinforced; light edge-wear, slight toning to spine of scarce dust jacket.
