Donald Bradley - Stock Market Prediction
Humankind has always been fascinated by the notion of auguring. For obvious reasons, this is particularly true where the stock market is concerned. While some of this exhibit's authors purport to divine future price movements through the study of astrological or historical cycles, others have taken a more mathematical approach using graphs and statistics to predict price movements. This last approach is commonly referred to as "technical analysis." Whatever the means, however, the prospect of forecasting stock market movements remains controversial: while some market scholars insist it can not be done, others such maintain that prices move in distinct repeating patterns that hint at upcoming moves. Both camps are represented in this exhibit, from the most adamant nay-sayers to the most meticulous technical analysts.
Donald Bradley - Stock Market Prediction
A technical analysis primer that surveys the accuracy of certain prediction techniques in forecasting major market moves of the 20's, 30's, 40's, and 50's. The author also introduces the "Bean Line," a new prediction tool predicated on the notion that stock prices are 'sandwiched in"' between two major economic forces, business cycles and market averages." First edition, hardbound with dust jacket.
The premise of this book is that all prices follow an historical trend, ordained by God. Benner, in this early example of a market prediction book, claims to have deciphered this cyclical trend and presents it to his readers straightforwardly, if simplistically. Hardbound edition.
A "scientific study" of the technical and fundamental factors affecting stock prices. Including in the text are discussions of "why the market moves," "market control," and "how banks affect the stock market." First edition, hardbound with dust jacket.
"Mr. Drew presents for the first time a classified analysis of easily understood and tested specific methods for timing stock market operations--some of them entirely new." This book includes discussions of Dow theory, wave principles and moving average methods of market forecasting. First edition, hardbound with dust jacket.
"The purpose of this book is to present to those interested in the market a concrete idea of stock fluctuations and price movements; to furnish the trader with a scientific cause of price changes, and to show by means of graphic charts the operation of the law of supply and demand in the stock market. . . . It is the belief of the author that the methods together with the charts used in this book will furnish a basis for profitable operation in the stock market." First edition, hardbound, illustrated with charts.
"The stock market goes right on repeating the same old movements in much the same old routine," writes Mr. Edwards. His book explains these patterns and helps readers to profit from recognizing these recurring trends. Fourth edition, fourth printing, hardbound.
A collection of stock market indicators with rules on how to interpret them. Granville, who pioneered the concept of the "On Balance Volume" indicator, claims that "one must keep returning to technical analysis for the ultimate answers the market will render." First edition, hardbound with dust jacket.
Part one of this book consists of a compendium of short and long-term stock market indicators together with discussions of fundamental stock analysis and market timing. The second portion of this text is designed to help readers "lay down specific plans of investment action based on the factors discussed in Part I." First edition, hardbound with dust jacket.
Rhea aims, in this book, to show that "the Dow-Jones averages are not merely a record of stock market changes but (when properly understood) they afford a composite index of all the hopes, disappointments, knowledge, and inside information of those whose financial business judgement determine the pattern and the trends of American business." Second printing, hardbound with dust jacket.
First published in 1924, this book not only provided readers a valuable introduction to the mechanisms behind the stock market and speculative tactics but, as the publisher maintains, in an "era when stock movements were considered deep mysteries by the average man, this work helped to dissipate prevailing ideas of the market as largely, if not solely, a manipulator's game." Paperback reprinted edition.
Bradley SiderographManfred Zimmel( -bradley.htm; 2002) The Bradleysiderograph was developed in the 40ies by Donald Bradley toforecast the stock markets. Bradley assigned numerical values tocertain planetary constellations for every day, and the sum is thesiderograph. It was originally intended to predict the stockmarkets. The noted technical analyst William Eng singled out theBradley as the only 'excellent' Timing Indicator in his book,"Technical Analysis of Stocks, Options, and Futures" (source:Astrikos). It is crucial to understand what the siderograph isabout since almost all traders (and even and even financialastrologers!) misunderstand it. Over the decades it has beenobserved that the siderograph can NOT (!!!) reliably predict thedirection but only turning points in the financial markets (stocks,bonds, bonds, commodities) within a time window of +/- 4 calendardays. Inversions (i.e. a high instead of a low and vice versa) arequite common. Also, it is not a timing tool for short-term trendsbut rather for intermediate-term to longer-term trends because theturning window is +/- 4 calendar days.
