How I made $2,000,000 in the Stock Market

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Nicolas Darvas

Narrated By: Jason McCoy

Publisher: BN Publishing

Date: January 2013

Duration: 3 hours 34 minutes


Hungarian by birth, Nicolas Darvas trained as an economist at the University of Budapest. Reluctant to remain in Hungary until either the Nazis or the Soviets took over, he fled at the age of 23 with a forged exit visa and fifty pounds sterling to stave off hunger in Istanbul, Turkey. During his off hours as a dancer, he read some 200 books on the market and the great speculators, spending as much as eight hours a day studying. Darvas invested his money into a couple of stocks that had been hitting their 52-week high. He was utterly surprised that the stocks continued to rise and subsequently sold them to make a large profit. His main source of stock selection was Barron's Magazine. At the age of 39, after accumulating his fortune, Darvas documented his techniques in the book, How I Made 2,000,000 in the Stock Market. The book describes his unique "Box System", which he used to buy and sell stocks. Darvas' book remains a classic stock market text to this day.

    I am an active trader. Nicolas Darvas' method is common sense, but his meticulous notes and annotations of what he was thinking when he made good moves and bad is one of the best sources of information out there. It is not a "How to..." book but rather you are looking over his shoulder as he traded to make the fortune he made relatively quickly (18 mos.) in the late 1950's. By the way, the $2,000,000 he made then adjusted for inflation would be over $14,000,000 today.

    This audio book is excellent. It helps a slow reader like me. I manage to listen to the audio book while driving and also before I sleep. It is so much more convenient and saves me time. The sound is clear and little interference. Thank you.
