In one of Berkshire Hathaway Chairman's letter in the earlier years written by Warren Buffett, he told a story, as he usually does, about his investment approach. He mentioned the loaded "shot gun wait" for a slow moving elephant as he sits waiting patiently. In last year’s letter he promised a return to the investment jungle as he had dry powder, but couldn't find a slow moving elephant fast enough to allocate his ever growing cash intake.
Dry powder is really referring to gun powder in a financial sense, but cash is the investment substitute for dry powder.

You have to have dry powder to invest.
