Richard Ney method
Richard Ney (1916 - 2004) the "Father of the Specialist Theory".

For the reader a specialists is limited to: insider, market maker, and of course the Specialist. Where as the Richard Wyckoff 'composite man' is much wider definition to include instiutions, pensions and other massive accounts.
Richard Ney
Richard Ney was an actor, financier, economics major from Columbia, writer of the very successful investment letter 'The Ney Report', and author of best-selling book 'The Wall Street Jungle'. This book was New York Times best seller for 11 months, however the 'Times' would not review it, and the Wall Street Journal refused to take ads from book stores who tried to sell it because it revealed Wall street secret. He is considered to be the “Father of the Specialist Theory”, and was an extremely successful investor, money manager, investment advisor, and self-made millionaire. He was also the foremost authority on the manipulation of stock prices by Specialists and insiders on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. From 1961 he guided investors to Stock Market profits as both a money manager and investment advisor. Mr Ney gained national attention in 1962 when a Time magazine cover story singled him out as having called the 1962 Stock Market crash, post 1962 he had successfully called virtually every major turn in the market including the crash of 1987.

Mr Ney had an insightful view of what he called stock "merchandising operations" by individual stock. He watched traders play around with new highs and round numbers, watching the volume moves in a few key stocks of the leading index, try to detect specialist buying, selling, short selling and short covering.

Mr Ney continually pointed out prices are normally moved on low to average volume, reaching price extremes on high volume. He presented his evidence that at panic lows the specialists were buying strongly while the public sells. He then would follow the progression as the prices were moved up on lower to average volume to an emotional big move trigger point where high volume was once again used for those insiders to first sell the stock they had purchased, and then sell much more stock short into that topping volume. The prices would then be dropped again on low to average volume to where the short sales could be profitably covered and long positions re-established. The specialists (composite man) used the emotional greed and fear (with the media) generated by price action to move their merchandise (stock float) in a profitable fashion. Again and again he pointed out where large price moves created volume - not the other way around.

Richard Ney repeatedly used this quote:

..” The story is told that after he had been deported to Italy, Lucky Luciano granted an interview in which he described a visit to the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. When the operations of floor specialists had been explained to him, he said, 'A terrible thing happened. I realized I'd joined the wrong mob”….

The point being the specialist exists not to ensure the free and orderly trade of stock in a particular company, but to fatten himself up upon the innocence and ignorance of the small investor.

[Review the market manipulations during the 1929 stock market crash with Wayne Jett here]

The specialist strategy is to buy at wholesale prices and to sell at retail. Their goal is to accumulate stock float at lower prices (wholesale) and then to raise the price of the stock with his stock float inventory intact to latter distribute at higher prices (retail), there you have it a simple merchandising process! Of course in practice, though, they may have to sell shares on the way up to meet public demand. This will cause them, then, to lower the price in some form to re-accumulate their inventory before they can proceed to higher prices (Wyckoff ‘Stepping stone’ of ‘Cause and Effect’).

Mr Ney’s point was that the only way to profit in any market consistently was to piggy back on the activities of the all-powerful specialists. Detecting their actions (Buying, Selling, Short Covering [buying], Short Selling [selling]) with price and volume patterns to trade with the specialists. has the tools for the Ney Angles

Investing Quote...

.."After exhaustive researches and investigations of the known sciences, I discovered that the Law of Vibration enabled me to accurately determine the exact points to which stocks or commodities should rise and fall within a given time. The working out of this law determines the cause and predicts the effect long before the Street is aware either."..

William D Gann

.."Just because you do not take an interest in politics doesn't mean politics won't take an interest in you"..


..“If a speculator is correct half of the time, he is hitting a good average. Even being right 3 or 4 times out of 10 should yield a person a fortune if he has the sense to cut his losses quickly on the ventures where he is wrong.”..

Bernard Baruch

Investing should be more like watching paint dry or watching grass grow. If you want excitement, take $800 and go to Las Vegas.

Nobel Laureate for Economics Paul Samuelson

.."If past history was all there was to the game, the richest people would be librarians"..
