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.

“Mostly” Made in America

In honor of Labor Day, President Trump tried to give workers across this land something to celebrate – the new trade deal with Mexico. The proposal requires cars to be made at least 75% in the trade bloc of the...

The Bitcoin Train

A few weeks ago on CNBC, an analyst compared the bitcoin bubble to the early internet bubble. What?! We’ve been saying that since late December 2017, when bitcoin was just starting to crash. And oh, did it crash. It dropped 37% in just...

The Pot Game Is Just Getting Started

I recently traveled to Toronto, Canada. My wife and I took a bicycle tour and traveled to the waterfront, the old Distillery District, over to the CN Tower, up to Chinatown, and then through Kensington. You notice things as you...

Beware of Greeks Bearing Bridges

OK, so I kind of mashed up this title. The first part is obvious, something about Greeks and gifts. The second part is actually a double entendre. I cobbled together the old line of, “If you believe that, then I’ve got...

Overbuilding, Over-Borrowing, and the Autocracy

Read a great article in The New York Times on Sunday (August 19). Erdoğan of Turkey made it into the West’s graces by pretending to bring democracy to Turkey. He was to be an example of a moderate, modernizing Muslim...

Nearing a Line in the Sand

Most of the classic technical indicators favor a continued rally in stocks into 2019. And that’s still my preferred scenario for a final peak. One that happens in late 2019, coming off of this Trump rally that started in late...

The Sunbelt Dominates

I’ve never read so many good articles and rankings on cities by growth, affordability, and desirability. Especially during a time when the real estate market is crazy! This is the last one I’ll bring you for now… This study rates on...

Rent the House You Live in… Buy One Far Away to Rent Out…

I enjoyed two recent articles by Andrea Riquier at MarketWatch. The first was “The new housing play: helping priced-out renters become long-distance landlords.” It was a strategy aimed at people living in unaffordable areas – like San Francisco, Los Angeles, Miami,...

Middle Class, Beware

In San Francisco, a household now needs an income of $188,000 to afford rent for the average two-bedroom house or apartment with 30% of the household income spent on housing. The problem is that the median income is only $103,801. Housing...
