More Russell

On July 8, 1932, the Dow sunk to its final bear market low of 41.22.

As soon as the Dow passed that low, volume on the NYSE suddenly soared to 4-5-6 million shares as the market surged higher. A new bull market had started amid the Great Depression. At that time, nobody had any money. The nation was broke. And yet when the market following July 8 turned from bear to bull, volume exploded. The market in its amazing wisdom, immediately recognized the turn. And from a "broke America," money poured into Wall Street as volume on the NYSE surged. I always wondered where that money came from -- wasn't it remarkable -- and it is a lesson I'll never forgot. When the price is right, the money will be there.
