The Dow Theory.
An explanation of its development and an attempt to define its usefulness as an aid in speculation.
New York, Barron's, 1932
While confined to bed with illness for ten years, Rhea studied the Dow's action thoroughly, eventually becoming convinced that it provided the only accurate method for forecasting stock movement. This clear and precise work is the result. By 1938 Rhea was selling his mimeographed 'Dow Theory Comments' opinions to five thousand clients at forty dollars a year. Soon he had twenty-five assistants, and his bedroom became a statistical storehouse.
