می دیدم که هر سهم درست مثل یک انسان، مشخصات و رفتارهای مخصوص به خود را دارد. اصلا غیرمنطقی نبود زیرا درست رفتار افرادی را منعکعس می کردند که آنها را می خرند یا می فروشند.
همانند آدم ها، سهم ها نیز رفتارهای متفاوتی از خود نشان می دادند. برخی آرام، کند و محافظه کار بودند. برخی دیگر پرهیاهو، عصبی و ه……more

I’d wanted to read this stock market classic for a long time but it is notoriously hard to find. Finally I bought it through a reseller on Amazon.com. The seller was in England and the book arrived in my mailbox a couple of weeks later. It was worth the wait!

What adds to the book’s appeal is that… …more

I was studying for the CPA exam at a local Starbucks. I met an old man who had a bag of books. The old man is a retired accounting & finance professor at Pepperdine University. He had his kindle with him and I was picking his favorite useful books. He marked this one as one of the must reads…. …more

About Nicolas Darvas

Nicolas Darvas’ story is unique for many reasons.

  • It is well-documented and authenticated in his May 1959 interview with Time Magazine.
  • Darvas did not have inside information or work within the financial industry. He was not some sort of financial whiz kid; in fact, he was one half of the worlds’ well paid ballroom dancing team and toured extensively.
  • The difference is that Darvas was always working on the ultimate trading plan. He made plenty of painful and costly mistakes but he learnt from them. He developed a set of risk management rules that would finally lead him to amass a small fortune within a few years.
  • The Darvas story is unique in that there is no mystery to how he made his fortune. Unlike other theories put forward by so-called market gurus, there is no need to spend years unravelling the mystery of Darvas.

You can trade like Darvas today! Darvas’ story and his trading technique were described in his first book. His method, like all good systems, is simple and founded in logic.

All you require is the discipline to follow it.

Darvas’ discipline was remarkable, this coupled with his ability to analyse himself as well as the market was the root of his trading success. Through his self-analysis he came to realize that ‘his ears were his worst enemy’.

He amassed his fortune without the help of computers, mobile phones, fax machines or any or any of the communications technology we have at our disposal today, indeed he only had access to ‘end-of-day data’.

All of his trading decisions were made outside trading hours, not sitting watching a live data screen all day.

Starting with a purchase of only $3000 worth of stock, Darvas amassed a fortune of over $2.2 million dollars. This was in 1959 and would be equivalent to over $20 million dollars today.
