The Sentinel's purpose is to educate readers on investment topics and economic trends. Oceans of information are available but how much do readers truly understand? Investment failure is often the result of misunderstood information and an inability to identify changes in trend. People invest based on what others are doing. This type of crowd-following can be deadly during trend changes. <br /><br />Rather than simply telling you what to do, The Sentinel explains the reason for taking specific action. The explanation is given with historical context and contemporary examples. Such an approach applies reasoning to investment action rather than the herding instinct typical to most investors.
