Nicolas Darvas was a professional ballroom dancer and self taught investor through the 1950’s, who toured around the world with his dance partner and half sister, Julia.
Darvas already had an interest in the market having trained as an economist, so during the times he wasn’t dancing, he would read books relating to the market and it’s speculators.
Having gained valuable knowledge and ideas from the readings, Darvas invested in a couple of stocks which the share price had risen for. This decision ultimately produced the famous trading stock approach which our Darvas Box Trading Scanner uses,”The Box System”
Within 18 months of his first investments, Darvas made $2,450,000.00 which equals to $24,884,883.82 in todays currency.
