"I've read a lot of books in my time but I think the tone you take is just what people need - a bit of reality!"
About the Author
As detailed in his book, Jesse does just about everything differently. He likes to say, "What everyone knows isn't worth knowing and what everyone does isn't worth doing."
Jesse is an unconventional stock trading cowboy. During his career, he has had short-term account drawdowns of 61%, 64%, 65%, 75%, 100%, 100%, and 106%. In spite of his drawdowns, in non-overlapping periods during his career, he has had short-term (less than 1 year) personal portfolio gains of 111%, 117%, 156%, 264%, 273%, 275%, 300%, 371%, 1,010%, 1,026% and 1,244% (these last two in the same period- 7 months and 11 months, respectively).
Jesse is the founder of World40.com and is a diabolical student of market history as it relates to uncovering the market's biggest gainers. His religious principles are independence of thought, visualization, and confidence....as they relate to financial markets.
In a past life, Jesse studied Economics at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. He received his MBA from Georgia State University in Atlanta.
Over the years, Jesse has spent considerable time in developing nations. He has lived in or traveled throughout China, Laos, Vietnam, Indonesia, India, Tanzania, Kenya, Uruguay, The Philippines, Malaysia, Ecuador, Colombia, Venezuela, Chile, Peru, Costa Rica, Brazil, Mexico, Macau, Argentina and Cambodia.
He has also spent time in more mundane locales such as Singapore, Iceland, South Africa, Hong Kong, Japan, The Bahamas, Australia, Canada, and much of Europe.
Jesse's remarkable personal journey and 16-year courtship with the financial markets are detailed in his book "Insider Buy Superstocks".
