Economic commentary

Monthly macro and markets update

Mackenzie economists shine a spotlight on the latest market and global economic trends.


The US dollar remaining dominant doesn’t mean it won’t depreciate

The US dollar’s impending demise has been making the headlines recently. However, while there’s little doubt that the dollar’s value will continue to decline, there are compelling reasons why it will remain the world’s dominant reserve currency.

China holds the key to avoiding a global recession

China will prevent the global economy from sinking, but it won’t send it flying.

Lower volatility potential with dollar-cost averaging

The concept of “buy low and sell high” sounds attractive, but it can be difficult to follow due to the unpredictable nature of short-term market prices. To take advantage of these changing prices, one effective investment strategy is dollar-cost averaging (DCA).

Timing the market is tougher than it sounds

When markets decline, it’s tempting to sell and wait for stability before jumping back in. But it’s virtually impossible to know when markets will rebound. Trying to time the market by buying a GIC may sometimes look like a smart move, but your long-term investment performance will likely be worse than if you had simply stayed invested through the bad times.

The ride up is usually bigger than the ride down

It’s human nature to be more emotionally sensitive to falling markets, but it’s not always logical. It’s natural for markets to move up and down over time, and the average length of a rising (bull) market is much longer than a declining (bear) market, where gains in a bull market often far exceed losses in a bear market.

Why balanced? For returns and risk management

It’s close to impossible to predict what assets will perform the best (or worst) over time in any market. As a result, investors spread their savings across many asset classes and many countries or regions, according to their ability or willingness to take risk. This spreading out of assets is called “diversification”.
