Nicolas Darvas was an internationally famous dancer when he first ventured into the stock market. He made show-business history when he was held over for a record-breaking 14-month engagement in New York’s Latin Quarter. And he made financial history when he revealed how he had won more than $2,000,000 in a dazzling 18-month sortie in the stock market. TIME magazine hailed him as a “top stock-market speculator”; LIFE wrote him up; BARRON’S, the bible of Wall Street, featured his incredible success story. The “dancer wizard” was the subject of innumerable cartoons, quips, and commentaries, and was the center of a storm of controversy.
Darvas’ book HOW I MADE $2,000,000 IN THE STOCK MARKET, became an overnight best seller, and caused the American Stock Exchange to revise its rules. Though a novice in the market just ten years ago, Darvas was trained as an economist at the University of Budapest and was one of the best-known crosswrord puzzle editors and sports-writers in his native Hungary.
