  The Count of Monte Cristo has numerous financial data and speculations in it that shows that during the Napoleonic years there was active speculations. For example when Villefort learns that Napoleon has escaped from Elba he immediately tells his wife to sell french government bonds. Eventullly the count destroys the betraying Danglars by selling all the stocks he owns short. I am listening to the Bill Homewood reading of the story and his narration makes the story exciting.

    Most airplane accidents occur when the pilot becomes emotional and instead of trusting instruments he overrides them and trusts gut instinct but in the markets when this happens like in the air its often wrong. Better to stick to objective decisions before trade initiated instead of reacting.
