About Richard Russell

Richard Russell began publishing Dow Theory Letters in 1958. Russell gained wide recognition via a series of over 30 Dow Theory and technical articles that he wrote for Barron's during the late-'50s through the '90s. In 1989, Richard Russell took over Julian Snyder's advisory service, "International Moneyline", a service which Mr. Snyder ran from Switzerland. Then, in 1998 Richard Russell took over the Zweig Forecast from market analyst Martin Zweig.

Richard Russell was educated at Rutgers and received his BA at NYU. He has written articles and has been quoted in such publications as Bloomberg magazine, Barron's, Time, Newsweek, Money Magazine, the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, Reuters, and others.

About Dow Theory Letters

The Dow Theory Letters, published and mailed every three weeks, cover the US stock market, foreign markets, bonds, precious metals, commodities, economics -- plus Richard Russell's comments and observations and stock market philosophy. One of the features of the Letter is Richard Russell's daily Primary Trend Index (PTI), which is a proprietary index that has been included in the Letters since 1971. The PTI is a guide to the trend of the market, and it often actually differs with Russell's opinions, but Russell always defers to his PTI. The latest Primary Trend Index figure for the day is posted on a few hours after the close of the market. Also included on the website are Richard Russell's comments on the day's action along with critical market data.

Manage Your Portfolio with the Position Manager

There are quite a variety of investment newsletter services available to investors today, which achieve a decent track record. In reality, however, many newsletters have not translated well for most investors that subscribe to them. The reason? Money management. Without the proper position sizing using the right money management tool, you are only dealing with half the formula for success.

Let's face it: if there was one consistently successful investment newsletter, then the word would spread rapidly, and that one investment newsletter would have more customers than the population of China. The reality is that there has never been such a success. Why? Because in the final analysis, 8 out of 10 investors fail due to one simple reason: position sizing.

The majority of investors who subscribe to investment newsletters think that the process is as simple as "Just give me your recommendations and let me become as successful as you are". Unfortunately, as money managers know, entry points account for very little in the overall success of a portfolio.
