Unable to convince anyone to write a detailed article about tape reading for his magazine, The Ticker, Richard D. Wyckoff decided to write about it himself and reason it out as he went along. The resulting twelve articles were published in 1908 and 1909.

Transcribed from the pages of the Ticker, corrected to remove printing errors where possible, and newly typeset, Studies in Tape Reading: Compiled from the Original Magazine Articles contains not only the twelve original chapters of the Studies, but also an additional 26 supplemental articles and graphs from the magazine.

This edition provides the modern reader with a clean copy of the text, and the additional material presents a broader perspective of tape reading, market dynamics, and the trading environment prevailing at the time the Studies were written than is conveyed by the twelve Tape Reading chapters alone.

Some of the supplemental topics are:Analysis of a trader's account, running expenses, and the invisible eighthHow stock exchange transactions were reportedRollo Tape's four Market Lectures covering accumulation, marking up, and distributionShort features on James R. Keene and Jesse LivermorePrice graphs of the three main stocks discussed in the textSelected questions and answers about tape reading from the Ticker's Inquiry ColumnWyckoff's 1912 Finance Forum address on tape reading
