Markets

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.

Bitcoin’s Surge Proves It’s a Bad Currency

If you went to the store two days in a row and all the prices had gone down by 20% on the second day, would you wonder what was going on? What if prices jumped 10% one day, then fell...

Stock Buybacks: Worst Mistake Ever

A lot’s driving this bubble we’ve been in since 2009, but good fundamental trends and things like demographics and technology are not among them. The biggest inflator has been the $13 trillion worth of quantitative easing (QE) courtesy of central...

Facing Down Financial FOMO with Lyft

Biotech in 1990, internet companies in 1999, vacation homes in 2005, cryptocurrencies in 2017. Now the fast money is chasing ridesharing pioneer Lyft, as well as other unicorns (private, money-losing companies valued at $1 billion or more). The Fear of...

Start Investing Like the Mafia Now

An article caught my eye earlier this week: 102-year old John “Sonny” Franzese, a former Colombo crime family member, incarcerated for 50 years for refusing to rat on his friends, is finally speaking out. This, on the heels of...

Recession? Yes, But Not Yet

In the last week, there have been a slew of articles warning that we’re on the verge of a recession. The most prominent is talk about the yield curve – the 10-year versus the three-month Treasurys – finally inverting. That...

Where to Next For the U.S. Dollar

People don’t understand gold. They don’t understand the U.S. dollar either. Mostly, it’s the same people. Gold bugs thought we were debasing the dollar by printing our way out of the 2008/9 financial crisis. Ha! Actually, the dollar has been rising...

65 Million Things You’re Not Hearing About China Trade War

China’s been playing hardball with the U.S. over trade talks. There’s good reason: they’re gunning for the title of Top Global Economic Power, above the U.S. and other players. They’re embracing the short-term pain to win the long-term fight. But… They have...

What Boomers Will Do to Real Estate and Nursing Homes

Recently we talked about why Millennials aren’t buying a house at the same rate as their Boomer and Gen X parents. Today, let’s talk about how Boomers and Gen Xers are actually contributing to the housing shortage, and so...
