Stock Market Theory and Practice.New York: B. C. Forbes, 1930 Stock Code: 107467
With the scarce jacketFirst edition, first printing, with the scarce jacket. This is the first of Schabacker's three major works on the stock market. The youngest financial editor of Forbes magazine, Schabacker writes, "so long as he plays courageously fair with his sincere study there seems no reason why the average student should not reap the rewards of successful stock market operation". The book aims to give a complete background of basic knowledge with which to pursue market activities, documenting important charting patterns and discussing trends, support, and resistance. "Schabacker was the first to make technical analysis and charting an organized discipline" (Linda Raschke). With over a hundred charts and illustrations, and a frontispiece featuring a detailed map of the New York financial district.
