Why small traders shouldn't rely on brokers. Why you shouldn't trust the financial "news" in the business press. How the market is manipulated into decline and panic by savvy insiders. In a 1904 lecture, reproduced in this slim but provocative volume, Franklin Keyes explains in simple language a nugget of wisdom that should be common sense: the general public cannot avoid getting fleeced by the buccaneers of Wall Street. Keyes's words are shocking but, in retrospect, obvious, and still highly pertinent today. You'll never look at a stock-market report in the same way again.

"It is a peculiar feature of Wall Street speculation that the novice never gets his courage worked up to buy stocks until the market is right on the top, and he never concludes to sell until the market is clear on the bottom." - from Wall Street Speculation

FRANKLIN C. KEYES was a New York lawyer.
