The formation of such a line sometimes suggests that stock has been accumulated or distributed, and this leads other people...
Página 89 - Judging by the past and by the developments of the last six years, it is not unreasonable to suppose that we may get at least a stock exchange flurry in the next few years.
Página 14 - ... to sell their commodities with reputation by means of Brokers than we do; for that which seems to be gotten thereby is more than double lost another way. Besides, that by that course many differences are prevented which arise between man and man in, their bargains or verbal contracts; for the testimony of a sworn Broker and his book together is sufficient to end the same.
Página 45 - As a whole, it represents a serious, well considered effort on the part of far-sighted and well-informed men to adjust prices to such values as exist or which are expected to exist in the not too remote future.
Página 57 - Everybody knows j this in its application to his private business, but the man who is prudent and careful in carrying on a store, a factory or a real estate business, seems to think that totally different methods should be employed in dealing in stocks. Nothing is further from the truth.
Página 40 - September. It may be said that such a swing always outruns values. In its final stage it is discounting possibilities only. A Useful Definition In the same editorial Dow goes on to give a useful definition from which legitimate inferences may drawn.
