“You can’t keep a good market down”

“You can’t keep a good man down” is a popular saying from the 1880s. “‘You can’t keep a good market down.’ some gleeful broker is alleged to have written on a postcard to the federal reserve board last week” was cited in the financial sections of several July 1929 newspapers.

“You can’t keep a good market down” was cited in Forbes magazine in 1984 and “You can’t keep a good market down, Wall Streeters say” was cited in Business Week in 1988.


8 July 1929, The Montana Standard (Butte, MT), “Bulls Have Merry Fourth,” pg. 7, col. 5:
“You can’t keep a good market down.” some gleeful broker is alleged to have written on a postcard to the federal reserve board last week.

22 June 1975, The Sunday Plain Dealer (Cleveland, OH), “Following Finance: You can’t keep the market down” by John E. Bryan, sec. 2, pg. 10, col. 3:
While the first phase of the new bull market has been a long one, there have been some corrections and it appears you can’t keep a good market down.

There is an old saying, “You can’t keep a good market down.” The question I am asking myself now is, “How long can you keep a bad market up?”
