Richard Demille Wyckoff (November 2, 1873 – March 19, 1934) was an exceptionally successful trader & stock market authority.
Wyckoff's trading method is solidly based on the laws of:-
1: Supply & demand
2: Effort & result
3: Cause & effect
Wyckoff said of the markets "Every minute of the day it is demonstrating whether supply or demand is the greater."
As Wyckoff became wealthier, he also became altruistic about the public's Wall Street experience. He turned his attention and passion to education, teaching others to trade successfully.
In 2002 Mr. David Penn, of Stocks and Commodities magazine wrote an article entitled “Titans of Technical Analysis.” in which Richard D. Wyckoff was one of the five together with Charles Henry Dow, Ralph Nelson Elliott, William Delbert Gann, and Arthur A. Merrill.
Wyckoff was a contemporary of Edwin Lefevré who wrote the classic “The Reminiscences of a Stock Operator”. Like Lefevré, Wyckoff was a keen observer and reporter who codified the best practices of the celebrated stock and commodity operators of that era.
