Many of you might remember Marty Zweig. He was a frequent guest on Lou Rukeyser's Wall Street Week back when it was pretty much the only financial program on television. This predated FNN (Financial Network News) which was before CNBC.

Marty wrote a very good book: "Winning on Wall Street."

Marty's firm did a press release on his passing, apparently of cancer.

Oh, that is sad - and like many other things, these days, makes me feel older.

I started watching Wall St. Week in the 70's, and Marty was one of the younger regular panelists. It was "highly recommended" material in a securities analysis class I was taking at the time. And many people in our class did watch it, even though it was on Friday night.

As noted, this was when WSW was about the only financial show of any kind on TV - on that socialist PBS, of all places!

RIP Marty......I always liked his thoughtful comments well actually I liked the congeniality and thoughtful comments of all of Lou's guests. No screaming or hollering or antics on that show I always looked forward to on Friday nights.

RIP to Marty and Lou

Here's a clip of Mr. Zweig on the Rukheyser show on October 16, 1987. That was the Friday evening before "Black Monday" due it was thought to program trading. Mr. Zweig did use the word "crash" to describe what he thought was coming.

It has been a long time, so my memory may be false, but I do have a specific memory of him, on more than one time, saying "Don't fight the Fed."
