Item description for The Battle for Investment Survival by Gerald M. Loeb...
"Loeb tells us to put all our eggs in one basket, and watch the basket." -John RothchildFinancial Columnist, Time magazine
"This book is very special in my life. It is the very first Wall Street book I ever read. After reading 1,200 additional finance books, The Battle for Investment Survival's principles and concepts are still valid for consistent success." -Victor Sperandeo Author of Trader Vic on Commodities
In The Battle for Investment Survival, the turf is Wall Street, the goal is to preserve your capital at all costs, and to win is to "make a killing without being killed." This memorable classic, originally written in 1935, offers a fresh perspective on investing from times past. The Battle for Investment Survival treats investors to a straightforward account of how to profit-and how to avoid profit loss-in what Loeb would describe as the constant tug-of-war between rising and falling markets.

Timeless Book Jan 2, 2008
One of the best book written by Gerald Loeb. I liked the way he said put all your eggs in one basket and see the basket grow. Ofcourse before you put all the eggs in one basket you may want to research on the stock very carefully both the fundamental and technical details and most importantly the market needs to be in a uptrend. 3 out of 4 stocks fail in a market downtrend. Loeb bought most of his winning stock as the market was in a confirmed rally and the leaders were on the verge of breakout on higher volume. A recent such phenomenon happened on 29th Aug 2007 when the market confirmed a new rally and in that rally Baidu, Dryships, Vimpel communications rose over 100% in less than 3 months. A phenomenon seen so often.
A pure trader's book Dec 29, 2007
I can fully see why Nicolas Darvas was so adamant about this book along with Tape Reading & Market Tactics By Humphrey B. Neill. When this book was written in 1930s, it was one of the very few pure trader's books. In todays standard, it still is.
Tried but true Nov 22, 2007
Loebs book can be likened to an " armchair chat " with a family friend who happens to be a stockbroker. The book is humorous, poignant and ironic. Ironic because on page 38 Loeb states " I feel that any source ready instantly to pass on everything and anything should be regarded with skepticism ".
Timeless Trading Tips Sep 21, 2007
I'm amazed that this book was published during the mid 60's but the trading rules that gerald loeb advices is the same trading rules that I use until now. It just show you that the Stock market never changes. Trading pyschology stays the same because fear and greed will always be part of the trading cycle. If you want to get down to the basics of stock trading read this book.
