Livermore wrote How To Trade in Stocks shortly before his death in 1940, and at the urging of his son. How to Trade In Stocks is a very important book for anyone who is interested in actively trading stocks. How To Trade in Stocks provides you with a best-practice framework for technical analysis (or, speculating, as it might be).
And although Livermore was often in and out of stocks quickly, he shares how he made a lot of his money riding core positions for extended periods of time.
I don’t want to give the whole book away, but How To Trade in Stocks is a pretty thorough guide on how you can read stock market behavior, analyze leading sectors, time market entries and exits and control your money and your emotions (easier said than done). One of the things I liked most about How To Trade in Stocks is the realistic approach it took. How To Trade in Stocks highlights more than one occasion where Livermore loses it all and had to start over from scratch.
I appreciated how the book did not glamorize the life of Jesse Livermore, even though it would have been easy to do.
How To Trade in Stocks shares this key and professes it will help you have a better handle on the market.


How To Trade in Stocks has tons of great information and the Market Key is just a little bit antiquated.
Because Livermore was working in an age when charts didn’t exist yet, the table-format he uses to track stock price-action is a little confusing.

He goes to extraordinary length to describe what circumstances you should look for to maximize your profit from the get-go. Although he was a very rich and successful man, it seemed Livermore suffered from some mental health issues and some of the biographical information in the book is actually quite fascinating. Of course by the end of the book Livermore has a much better grasp on risk management than when he begun. And while it’s definitely an interesting technique, I must say I found the rest of the book far more applicable. It’s basically a methodology for watching stocks and determining when to buy and sell based on their price momentum.


And even though the market key is a little bit out of date, the rest of the book is incredibly useful and provides a time-tested approach to technical analysis in it’s purest sense. I'm a value investor but, I use swing trading techniques to manage my position sizes and risk. There is a lot of time-tested advice about trading execution and emotional resilience, both of which are equally important. But the feeling that it could all slip away serves as a subtle reminder to the reader that risk in trading is real, even for the most successful speculators. And the manual tracking that the Market Key requires, is probably a little bit unrealistic, given the other tools we have available today.
