Jesse Livermore told his rule in the investment classic, Reminiscences of a Stock Operator, within the context of his operations in Anaconda Copper shares in 1907:

It was an old trading theory of mine that when a stock crossed $100, $200 or $300 for the first time the price does not stop there but goes a good deal higher, so that if you buy it as soon as it crosses the line it is almost certain to show you a profit.
