This retells the story of Darvas' spectacular seller, How I Made Two Million Dollars in the Stock Market -- published by the American Research Council. In the intervening years his big killing has gone up to two million four hundred and fifty thousand. It is a personal account of Darvas' speculations, his method of buying (only active rising stocks) and selling (stop-loss orders). He bases all this on a mixture of chart action and stock analysis (he's a self-styled ""technofundamentalist""). On the way, he tears down the popular concepts of stocks as investments and considers the street a kind of casino with croupiers, touts and suckers... The publishers will start this off with a big plunge -- advertising and publicity up to $40,000.
