Stock Market Games People Play to Win: For Those Who Aspire at Great Wealth Through the Enjoyment of Great Mental Pleasure (1967) by C.M. Flumiani
Alanpuri Trading, Los Angeles, CA, 2020, Softcover, Reprint, illustrated, 73pp. Originally published in 1967.
Here’s Flumiani’s pitch for this book:
If there was a book which was written with the specific purpose of permitting men and women to become rich, even fabulously rich while enjoying themselves with the “game of Wall Street” this is unquestionably that book. WEALTH gives independence and independence carries the sweet fragrance of power…YOU WILL FIND in these pages the 25 basic Stock Exchange games…TO KNOW THESE games and to apply them correctly means to gain the certain passport to success in Wall Street. THE ABSOLUTE majority of these games are new, original: they appear in no other book: they have never been told or disclosed to anyone before: this is the very first time they are shared with the public.HERE YOU FIND the game and you find the solution to the game and the meaning of the game and how to apply the game: how to exploit the game.THE REST, the flow from winning through knowledge should come to you automatically and abundantly.
Of all of Flumiani’s books, this one is probably the best organized and logically structured. Inside we find 25 stock market concepts that are well defined and illustrated by Flumiani. Keeping in mind that this was all done in 1967, well before computer charts were being used and well before technical analysis became widely accepted. Flumiani uses his illustrations and prose to attempt to layout the individual and crowd psychology going on in each of these 25 “stock market games.” Although this title is a good primer on how the market moves, it’s missing any mention of risk management which we think is vitally important for any entry level book on speculation.
