VSA 101 – Everything You Must Know About VSA
Who Invented VSA?
There are three big names in VSA’s development.
– Jesse Livermore
– Richard Wyckoff
– Tom Williams
Jesse Livermore spoke of a theory based on market manipulation. He also worked his theory in his legendary trading career. However, he did not pass down concrete trading methods. His legacy is that of a trader and not an educator.
Richard Wyckoff was much more interested in education. To find methods that work in the markets, he interviewed top traders including Jesse Livermore. Wyckoff proposed the idea of a “Composite Trader” that embodies the entire market. He used the “Composite Trader” to explain the market phases of accumulation, markup, distribution, and markdown.
Neither Jesse Livermore nor Richard Wyckoff used the term “Volume Spread Analysis”. It was Tom Williams who used the term to describe the methods he built based on the Richard Wyckoff’s ideas. Tom Williams’ books and software has helped to propel the concepts of VSA among traders.

Check your emotions at the door
“Success in investing doesn’t correlate with IQ … what you need is the temperament to control the urges that get other people into trouble in investing.” That’s wisdom from Warren Buffett, chairman of Berkshire Hathaway, oft-quoted investing sage and role model for investors seeking long-term, market-beating, wealth-building returns.
How I Trade and Invest in Stocks and Bonds
by Richard D. Wyckoff
2011 Reprint of 1922 Edition. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. Richard D. Wyckoff’s writings never grow old. This book was originally published in 1922; it is still timely. Wyckoff’s modus operandi was to have a small trading account (“not over five or ten per cent of my loose capital”) and invest its profits into income-paying securities with the potential to appreciate in value. Wyckoff justified the size of his trading account psychologically. “There is a much greater satisfaction in operating with a small amount of money for various reasons: It makes you more careful, because, having set yourself to the task of realizing a large profit on a limited amount of operating capital, you plan your moves shrewdly and do not take risks such as you would if operating with more money.” (pp. 42-43) And then there’s the emotional high of seeing outsized returns on a percentage basis. Chapters Include: 1. My First Lessons in Investing and Trading 2. Profitable Experiences in the Brokerage and Publishing Fields 3. Why I Buy Certain Stocks and Bonds 4. Unearthing Profit Opportunities 5. Some Good Experiences in Mining Stocks 6. The Fundamentals of Successful Investing 7. The Story of a Little Odd-Lot 8.
