George Schade is a meticulous researcher. Throughout this book, Schade brings Richard Schabacker to life and immerses you in the exciting financial events of the 1920s and 1930s. You will gain useful knowledge from Schabacker’s astute observations on markets. George Schade won the Charles H. Dow Award for “outstanding research,” and here you will see why. –ROBERT R. PRECHTER, JR., Elliott Wave International The history of technical analysis is vanishing. With each passing a bit of the library burns down. There are a few who are fighting the fires. Chief among them is George Schade, a consummate researcher, whose biography of Richard Schabacker snatches this pioneer’s story from the onslaught of entropy. If you care about the history of technical analysis, and I think every trader and investor should, this work is a must read. –JOHN A. BOLLINGER, President, Bollinger Capital Management, Inc. One can only wonder what Richard Schabacker, Princeton graduate, writer, author, distinguished finance editor of Forbes Magazine, teacher, devoted husband and father, might have accomplished had he not died at the young age of 36. Schabacker’s many accomplishments included developing the first stock market “index” and a groundbreaking course in technical analysis. Little has been known about this quiet Wall Street figure that lived through the Roaring 20’s, the Crash of 1929 and the Depression. This is a meticulously researched and lovingly detailed book about a brilliant and complicated man who was “an ardent believer in the efficacy of charts” who felt “no individual can trade intelligently without them.” –GAIL M. DUDACK, Managing Director Dudack Research Group, a division of Wellington Shields & Co. LLC. George Schade masterfully tells the unknown story of a market genius. Schabacker comes alive in the pages of this thoroughly researched book. Readers feel the excitement of the market in that long ago era and the market action animates the tale of a life well lived but cut tragically short. This book belongs on the bookshelf of anyone interested in the stock market or anyone seeking an understanding of human nature and how success can hide personal problems until it's too late. –MICHAEL J. CARR, Senior Editor, Banyan Hill Publishing Although Richard Schabacker’s life was short-lived, he was a giant in the field of technical analysis, contributing so much to the subject and has left all of us so enriched as a result. His passion and devotion is captured in this very revealing book. His concepts are indelible: market psychology, stages of price/business cycles, sentiment and the combination of value investing with technical timing – they have empowered us. –RALPH J. ACAMPORA, Director of Technical Research for Altaira, Ltd.
