Stay current and up-to-date with every ebb and flow of the markets, with articles from the Dent Research team. Our editors cover all markets, foreign and domestic, and all things trading, including: investment strategies, stocks, economic volatility and risk.

Readers of Economy & Markets should know the importance of investment systems. Our editors lay out several benefits of a well-defined, data-driven, and rules-based investment strategy, on a regular basis.

It’s often said in sports that “the best defense is a good offense.” When it comes to investing and stocks, this means focusing on companies that produce floods of cash and that “pay us first.”

The Dent Research team also examines the rise (and falls) of the world’s currencies, which of course includes bitcoin and blockchain, as the cryptocurrency market has taken the world by storm in a relatively short period of time.

Gold was a great standard for monetary systems up until the industrial revolution, but today, it isn’t representative of the information-based economy and it’s too costly to be a medium of exchange. But so many still hold on to gold’s value for a number of reasons, which is why our editors follow gold’s every move.

Real estate is different than other consumer sectors of spending. It’s obviously not consumable like food or clothing. But it’s not like a durable product either, like cars and washing machines. Real estate, with the exception of natural disasters or human insanity (arson, wars, etc.), tends to last forever.

Lastly, the Dent Research team covers many of the leading foreign markets, where you can learn all about the global banking crisis, China and what’s going on in many other foreign markets.

Lowest… Interest Rates… Ever

Interest rates on U.S. Treasury bonds may never be this low again. Ever. As Harry points out, we’re still facing another nine to 10 years of slowing growth, debt deleveraging and financial turmoil. Currently, with the yield on 30-yr U.S....

Housing Market Trend

In the world of technical analysis there are many different ways to define a trend. Of them all, I tend to rely on one of the simplest – the “highs and lows” method. An uptrend is characterized by successively higher...

Housing Market Attract Buyers… But For How Long?

Harry put his finger on the most important factor in the real estate market: it’s not interest rates. It’s not lending standards. It’s supply and demand. Or, as Harry puts it, “Buyers versus die-ers.” That’s the beauty of demographics research. It’s...

Outperformance of Regional Banks Waning

Regional banks had a good run. Over the past 15 months, the SPDR S&P Regional Bank ETF (NYSE: KRE) is up just shy of 58%. The gains made by these smaller banks outpaced those of the bigger banks, represented by...

Second Financial Crisis Ahead – Savers Revolt

Rodney Johnson | Monday, January 7, 2013 >> We need a banking revolution… or at least a saver’s revolution. The latest twist in the saga of the bank bailouts is almost too much to bear. Just when you thought large banks...

Buyers Beware

Harry’s right on. Australia has a lot of great things going for it right now. It’s an amazing place to visit, from a tourist’s perspective, and it’s one of the world’s most envied economies. With everyone going Australia’s way, for...

And You Think Gas Prices are Volatile!

I got a good laugh myself when Rodney first told me his story of the $800 plastic button. It reminds me of similar gripes my dad had when he drove a BMW – the parts were just ridiculously expensive! But...

Teutonic Shift Ahead?

Rodney Johnson | Thursday, January 3, 2013 >> In 2008 I almost bought a Mercedes. It was a two-year-old E500, black on black… very cool… very fast… and for my wife who has a sense of style as well as...

A Trip Around the World

Keeping with the theme of world travel, let’s look at how the global equity markets fared in 2012. Here’s a chart of three ETFs that track major economic regions: In green: the United States (SPY). In orange: Europe (VGL). And in blue: Asia-Pacific...

The Next Stock Market Crash Starts by Mid-Year

As I mentioned in a recent article, the biggest lesson we learned in 2012 was that governments would stimulate without limit to avoid a downturn or a debt deleveraging. In our view, such policies are incredibly unwise and irresponsible....
