The Money Trader is a story about money and greed. Down and out speculator Jake Buchanan makes a comeback in the 1987 crash. But will he find love and happiness?

On a borrowed $25,000 Jake makes over five million dollars on a huge speculative trade in the silver market. Before long he is trading and making more money than he ever imagined possible. Just when he thinks he has it all—money, a drop-dead gorgeous wife and a burgeoning new career—his luck abruptly changes.

Over a grinding three years he loses everything, his money, most of his friends, and all his self-confidence. Jake is down, but not out. The archetypal underdog hero, he’s a kind of Rocky Balboa in pinstripes. And like Rocky, Jake fights—sometimes comically but always heroically—to make a comeback.

At the heart of the story is Jake’s involvement with two rather extraordinary women, his steely but still loyal ex-wife Janet and Denise, a vivacious Latin beauty. The Money Trader is a must-read novel for anyone who has ever known the sweet taste of success, the bitter disappointment of defeat, the empty isolation of being alone, and the pure joy of being in love.

However, the name "Jerry Anderson" is apparently a pretty common one for authors! Are any of these other books also yours? If not, I can disambiguate you to a separate author profile.

Cait (tigercait) | 5005 comments No problem, and thanks! :) We're always happy to get info directly from the author to verify whose books are whose.

In that case, this is now your author profile with your name spelled Jerry^^Anderson, where ^ is one space. It won't show differently to readers, but if you enter your name with two spaces on any new books or new editions of this book, they'll show up correctly on your author profile.
