FIRST EDITION OF SCHABACKER’S STOCK MARKET PROFITS
SCHABACKER, Richard W. Stock Market Profits. New York: B.C. Forbes, (1934). Octavo, original blue cloth. $600.
First edition of the groundbreaking sequel to Stock Market Theory and Practice, featuring new insights on becoming a stock market insider.
R.W. Schabacker, the youngest financial editor of Forbes Magazine, intended for this book to explain how amateur investors could become stock market “insiders.” The trick, he asserted, was to follow the trends set by experienced investors and to distinguish one’s self from the general public, thereby becoming one of an elite and successful group. “Schabacker was the first to make technical analysis and charting an organized discipline” (Linda Raschke). Without scarce original dust jacket.
