Richard Russell

Bio: Russell began publishing Dow Theory Letters in 1958, and he has been writing the Letters ever since (never once having skipped a Letter). Dow Theory Letters is the oldest service continuously written by one person in the business.

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. Through Barron's and via word of mouth, he gained a wide following. Russell was the first (in 1960) to recommend gold stocks. He called the top of the 1949-'66 bull market. And almost to the day he called the bottom of the great 1972-'74 bear market, and the beginning of the great bull market which started in December 1974.

The Letters, published every three weeks, cover the US stock market, foreign markets, bonds, precious metals, commodities, economics --plus Russell's widely-followed comments and observations and stock market philosophy.

In 1989 Russell took over Julian Snyder's well-known advisory service, "International Moneyline", a service which Mr. Synder ran from Switzerland. Then, in 1998 Russell took over the Zweig Forecast from famed market analyst, Martin Zweig. Russell has written articles and 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. Subscribers to Dow Theory Letters number over 12,000, hailing from all 50 states and dozens of overseas counties.

A native New Yorker (born in 1924) Russell has lived through depressions and booms, through good times and bad, through war and peace. He was educated at Rutgers and received his BA at NYU. Russell flew as a combat bombardier on B-25 Mitchell Bombers with the 12th Air Force during World War II.

One of the favorite features of the Letter is Russell's daily Primary Trend Index (PTI), which is a proprietary index which has been included in the Letters since 1971. The PTI has been an amazingly accurate and useful guide to the trend of the market, and it often actually differs with Russell's opinions. But Russell always defers to his PTI. Says Russell, "The PTI is a lot smarter than I am. It's a great ego-deflator, as far as I'm concerned, and I've learned never to fight it."

Letters are published and mailed every three weeks. We offer a TRIAL (two consecutive up-to-date issues) for $1.00 (same price that was originally charged in 1958). Trials, please one time only. Mail your $1.00 check to: Dow Theory Letters, PO Box 1759, La Jolla, CA 92038 (annual cost of a subscription is $250, tax deductible if ordered through your business).

IMPORTANT: As an added plus for subscribers, the latest Primary Trend Index (PTI) figure for the day will be posted on our web site -- posting will take place a few hours after the close of the market. Also included will be Russell's comments and observations on the day's action along with critical market data. Each subscriber will be issued a private user name and password for entrance to the members area of the website.

This is what Investors Intelligence says about Richard Russell's Dow Theory Letters: "Richard Russell is by far the most interesting writer of all the services we get." Feb. 19, 1999.

Ronald Brown was born Febuary 3, 1941 in Sherveport, Louisiana. After graduating high school in 1959, Ron chose to attend Louisiana State University. He received his MBA in 1966 and moved to Dallas, Texas where he worked as a computer analyst.

In 1970 Ron became a stock broker. He moved to New Mexico in 1975 where he became interested in precious metals, a hedge against traditional investments, after studing the market intensely. In 1979 Ron formed his own company, North American Investment Services, which is a precious metals brokerage firm. Ron has spoken to many civic groups and conducted seminars on the dangers of the Federal Reserve, the massive national debt, and the uncontrolled government spending that undermines the value of paper assets. Ron strongly believes that everyone should have a percentage of their assets in precious metals as insurance against monetary crisis.

To better inform citizens of New Mexico on critical issues of the day, Ron formed the Wake up America Movement (WAM) in May 1994. WAM brought nationally recognized speakers on a monthly basis and conducted bi-weekly town hall meetings in Albuquerque. WAM's purpose was to educate citizens on constitutional issues and mobilize a grassroots effort to return the power of government back to the states and the people. Although WAM is no longer in existence, Ron is still very active in reaching out to citizens to educate them on the problems of the government.

In September of 2000 Ron and his wife Paula moved to Colorado. They are able to spend preicious time with family and be active in precious metals. Ron continues to speak on radio shows and is dedicated to helping people understand their monetary future.
