What markets are HOT for investors?

  • RREEF publishes free market research reports available for download on their website.  My favorite is their "economic map" which is published every 6-12 months. It shows which areas are impacted by local & economic factors. 
  • The last map published for the US was the January Economic Map of the Americas. I expect a new map will be coming out in the near future for the US markets.
  • To review the list of free reports go to: RREEF Research Reports
