The author Frank Tubbs was decades before everyone else in developing the rules and laws that govern stock market behaviour. One of his areas of expertise was how volume preceded and affected price. But what made Tubbs stand out in the 1930s was not only his great echnical ideas but also his expertise in the psychological aspects of trading and investing. He forged a name in this area of market analytics with his focus on discipline and "getting the mind in order". This guide is divided into ten lessons, providing readers with preparation techniques for stock market trading, an explanation of the relationship between volume and price, strategies for market analysis and time-tested ways to identify trends in the market.
