An eye-opener. Even after all the security laws/regulations passed during/after the Great Depression, there is still an insiders club that exists within the Stock Exchanges. And that "club" continues to fleece the average retail investor. The Exchange rationalizes the "club" as necessary to stabilize market prices. When in reality, the "club" introduces instability for its own gain. Corporate insiders have to disclose stock transactions. Why not the market makers? Even though the book is thirty-years old, it still rings true today. The club still exists and the government still has done relatively little to reign in the abuses of the insiders "club."

The Wall Street Gang, Richard Ney

Richard Ney, an investment advisor, wrote "The Wall Street Jungle". He forecast the market crash in May 1962, the rise and decline of January 1966, and the crash of October 1973. The `Foreword' by Senator Lee Metcalf tells how Ney's book guided him in his investigation of utility companies, and the business activity dominated by Wall Street and financial institutions. The information documented the failures of the SEC and the ICC to protect investors. "Operations are controlled for the benefit of the insiders who have the special information and the clout to profit from all sorts of transactions, regardless of the actual value of the stock traded" (p.xii). Insider deals are frauds on millions of small investors. The crisis for investors is caused by an absence of truth ('Preface'). The very rich and financial interests benefit by reserving truth for themselves (p.xiii). They control the nation's media and information through custom and government sanctions. Those victims who lose money are told its their own fault, not that the market is rigged against small investors (p.xiv). The "Stock Exchange as the source of the country's future financial problems." If you learn to buy when Wall Street insiders buy, and sell when they sell, you can win instead of losing (p.xv). Someone who has been defrauded needs a good attorney. Ney hopes this book will provide the facts to bring security and success in the market. He doesn't worry about those who want to suppress the truth.

Chapter 1 tells of his career change from acting to "investment advisor". His charting techniques warned of an imminent decline in the market (p.7). But he found out that the US Senate and the `Wall Street Journal' did not want his views (p.13).

A good sequel to The Wall Street jungle, but probably not necessary once you have the picture that it's a rigged game.

A classic book on Wall Street business culture which predates the great recession of 2007 by over four decades. Let the investor beware.
