Profits in the Stock Market by H.M. Gartley was originally published in 1935.  To get the most out of this discussion, the whole books, should be carefully reviewed.

To gain the greatest benefits, two complete re-readings are suggested. Experience has indicated that such re-readings will enable the average person to find a wealth of material, part of which he has passed over, and part of which has been obscured by the great mass of detail. Now, with the entire Course in mind, the reader may hope to gain a great deal by this review of the whole Course.


In Chapter I, great emphasis was laid upon the necessity for a plan of operation. In reviewing the Course, the following outline, classified according to the twoprimary problems, namely “When” and “What” to buy or sell, may prove a useful guide.

Next, we find section II, under the heading “The Working Tools”. These are market phenomena which develop as the trends unfold. They form the remaining part of the “When” question study.

Once decisions have been made concerning the outlook for the future course of the market, the technical student is then ready to give serious consideration to the “What” question. This we find in section III, under the heading “Comparative Studies”.

As the market is so complex, and includes such a vast number of individual units, the process of filtration is essential. This consists of studying groups of several stocks each, which are properly classed in a single category.
