The secret to Jesse Livermore’s legendary trading success. Although he began his career in 1892, Jesse Livermore is still considered to be one of the world’s greatest traders. In life and in death, Livermore has always been a controversial figure and his methods held up as a model for traders of all generations.

Ultimately, the parameters set by the men would determine the type of female leadership that emerged and whether it was able to realize its feminist and utopian agendas.
