Publisher’s Note: The author packs a great deal of information into 27 pages. This is an extremely scarce title and one we have yet to collect an original of it. The master for this version was a personal copy of the late trader/author Franklin Paul Jackson. The copyright page still bears the inscription that Ross made to Jackson in 1948. Leland S. Ross was based in San Francisco and was friends with fellow west coaster Jackson. We know from personal conversations with Jackson that he was also friends with J.E. de Mandel ,author of “Market Studies (1940),” and “Traders Bonanza (1936).” In addition to this title on the markets, Leland S. Ross was also an inventor and held a patent for a Juice Extracting Machine in the 1940s. Ross in his efficiency is able to offer some concise market observations in this short 27 page book. EXTREMELY RARE CONTENT. Collectible Reprint.
