The AAII Denver Chapter presents...

"100s of Indicators, But These10 You MUST Watch"

    Discussed by:

    Robert E. Wright, Ph.D.
    Augustana College, South Dakota

“So many indicators; so little time.”—We’ve all said that, as we watch the markets and see the constant march of economic news. Much of it turns out to be basically noise that government agencies release and the media rush to parrot and dramatize. What can you let pass, and what should really get your attention? Our August 20 speaker is co-author of “The Wall Street Journal Guide to the 50 Indicators That Really Matter.” He will not only list which indicators should get your attention, but, more importantly, he will also focus on the top 10—the ones you really should not ignore, based on his years of detailed research. We’ve all seen various “key” numbers go in and out of vogue, such as M-2, housing starts, unemployment claims, oil inventories, the Philly Fed index, and so on. Wright will cut through that seeming babble and to point us toward the ones that have proven over time and multiple cycles to be worth noting. And certain indicators have particular relevance to various market sectors and industries, so this will be a practical evening of learning! Why not invite a friend or family member to share the benefits that our AAII chapter offers?
