Why the secret to investing is time

Not so exciting to day-traders is the rationale for why time invested surmounts all other trading strategies. Calendar year returns define the bonus size of portfolio managers and sends the wrong message to investors who have decade(s) of time on their side to implement an investing strategy. There are two ways to make money from investing, capital gains and dividend income. Stock and bond prices fluctuate daily but dividends are rather consistent. The combination of the two has the ability to compound growth over time, providing the investor an upside not found with any other strategy. A portfolio manager at Epoch put it this way, "Dividends are always positive contributors to equity market

Markets remain stable despite geopolitical turmoil

Markets are unscathed by geopolitical volatility, more so than usual, as independence protests rock Hong Kong, Lebanon, Spain, and Britain. This illustrates the enormous discontinuity the market has against geopolitics and is a reminder that monetary policy and interest rates play a far more influential role. Central banks’ primary mission is to keep consumer prices stable. In the decade of lowering interest rates, their policies appear to play a bigger role in markets than on consumer prices.

Book report: Management of Art Galleries

If you're in search of art for your home or collection it may be helpful to take the viewpoint of the gallerist, who struggles to operate in a hugely competitive art market that's actively shifting online. The book, "Management of Art Galleries" by Magnus Resch provides such insight and inspiration to the gallerists willing to face such a challenge.
