Markets

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

Readers of Economy & Markets should know the importance of investment systems. Out 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.

A stock market crash is inevitable

Markets Change, Human Nature Doesn’t

Last week I talked about how the implosion of the short volatility trade was likely not the start of a bear market. However, it is a nasty reminder that stock prices do, in fact, actually go down from time to...

Remember, You Are Part of the Market

I’m a sci-fi nut… and proud of it! I’ve attended multiple Star Trek conventions, and I’m not ashamed to admit that I routinely use Spock’s neck pinch to silence my children when they become insolent. Frankly, it works, and who...

The Winners in Inflation

Last week, in a Chart-of-the-Day piece, I wrote about the impact rising interest rates could have on stocks. There’s a strongly-held belief that higher interest rates always work against stocks. But that’s only half true. The direction of interest rates is...

Guess Where Crypto Utopia is Being Built

Some of the wealthiest, smartest people in the cryptocurrency sector have realized that the territory is a very attractive place to create Crypto Utopia… so that’s what they’re doing. They’ve taken over an old hotel in old San Juan and...

Energy Companies Tank

When college economics professors want to explain how supply-and-demand affects prices, an easy lesson is to look at the energy markets. Early this month, West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude oil prices were hovering just above $66 per barrel, and many...

What the @#$! Just Happened?!

We’re only about five weeks into the year and one of my 2018 predictions is already coming true. The thing is, it was an easy one – though it’s always nice to be proven right. I predicted that volatility would...

Gold’s Day in the Sun?

I usually warn against reading too much into the financial media’s (backward-looking) explanation of a market move that just happened. But it really does seem that everyone’s suddenly worried about interest rates moving too high, too quickly. We all knew...

It’s Not Time to Go Bargain-Shopping Just Yet

Things got interesting last week. For the first time in history, the S&P 500 went from a new all-time high to a 10% correction in just nine days. In January, stock mutual funds and ETFs saw their biggest monthly inflows in...

Which of These Two Patterns is Unfolding Now?

Last week, markets fell out of bed. Yesterday, they got up and dusted themselves off. I’ve been warning for months now that U.S. markets are in a rising bearish wedge. This pattern tends to be the last move in a...

What the Hell Just Happened?

After what happened the stock and cryptocurrency markets the last few days, it feels like this week should be over. It’s been a crazy ride! Talk about whipsaws! And it’s only Wednesday. Yesterday, I sent you an email explaining how stocks were at...
