Product Description

Speculative Disasters is a brief, but fascinating guide about
what really influences the way the financial markets behave.

Here is the top five principles of the book in summary:

1. Your main purpose must be to keep the mind clear and well
balanced.Hence, do not act hastily on apparently sensational
information;do not trade so heavily as to become anxious; and
do not permit yourself to be influenced by your position in
the market.

2. Act on your own own judgement, or else act absolutely and
entirely on the judgement of another,regardless of your own
opinion.”To many cooks spoil the broth.”

3. When in doubt,keep out of the market. Delays cost less
than losses.

4. Endeavor to catch the trend of sentiment.Even if you
should be temporarily against fundamental conditions,it is
nevertheless unprofitable to oppose it.

5. The greatest fault of ninety-nine percent out of one
hundred active traders is being bullish at high prices and
bearish at low prices. Therefore, refuse to follow the market
beyond what you consider a reasonable climax, no matter how
large the possible profits that you may appear to be losing
by inaction.

Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover
Motley spent five years in Dresden, Brussels, and the Hague
to produce, in 1856, this popular three-volume history hailed
by readers of the time and recognized by scholars since as a
standard of the field. The lessons for modern society Motley
finds in the microcosm of Holland continue to hold true in
today’s uncertain political environment, and his dramatic
narrative and eloquent, lyrical prose remain a delight. The
author’s respect for the people of the Netherlands and their
triumphs as a nation still shines through, and this love
letter to the Dutch Republic retains the power to instruct
and inform.

About the Author
American diplomat and historian John Lothrop Motley
(1814-1877) studied law at Harvard and Göttingen, in Germany,
where he befriended Otto von Bismarck. He traveled
extensively in Europe, frequently in the diplomatic service,
but he is remembered primarily for his literary output of
historical essays and criticism, political pamphlets, and
novels. Oliver Wendell Holmes presented his biography in 1879
under the title John Lothrop Motley: A Memoir.
