The 1920s, aka the “Roaring ’20s,” was one of the most prosperous times in U.S. history.
The decade is often remembered for its bold fashion trends such as knee-length flapper dresses, and the rising popularity of jazz icons such as Duke Ellington and Louis Armstrong.
It also had a booming economy and extravagant spending. Huge developments such as radios and penicillin swept the nation.
From 1921 to 1929, the Dow Jones Industrial Average rallied more than 500%.

Now there’s a new “Roaring ’20s” on the horizon … the 2020s.
Economic trends and technological leaps are combining to set this up as the greatest decade in human history.
After all, only 1% of Americans owned stocks in the 1920s, so few people actually made money in the stock market. That’s why the new Roaring ’20s will be much more prosperous than the first one — minting millionaires left and right.
We want to help you become one of those success stories. So the team here at Sovereign Investor Daily decided to create a two-week-long special series in honor of this historic opportunity. And it all starts Monday…
Your Sneak Peek of Next Week’s Special Series
We’re transforming our entire look for this special event!
To give you a sneak peek at what to expect, here’s the special masthead we created. You’ll be seeing this at the top of every Sovereign Investor Daily article over the next two weeks:
And, as a bonus, here’s a preview of what you can look forward to reading about:
- How Uber is replaying the taxi boom: Taxis flooded into New York City in the 1920s, with Checker and Yellow Cab becoming the two dominant players in the fledgling industry. By 1929, there were more than 20,000 taxis on the streets of the city. And now, ride-sharing companies such as Uber and Lyft are ushering in a new era of personal transportation. Michael Carr will have the full story on what this means for you on Monday.
- The rise of long-standing Big Tech companies: Many companies have come and gone over the years. But one 1920s tech stock has remained strong throughout all 20th century developments. On Tuesday, Jeff Yastine will discuss the incredible opportunities, like this one, that are coming to investors in the next decade.
- Disruptive shifts in consumer trends: Americans went on a spending spree after World War I, and consumer credit more than doubled in just four years. Today, consumer credit is at an all-time high, paving the way for a new boom in discretionary spending. Ted Bauman covers what to expect in the years ahead in his Wednesday article.
It’s going to be great! We even touch on Prohibition and how that type of trend is playing out today. So make sure you check your email every day to get our editors’ latest analysis and predictions.
We also have a few bonus videos we’re releasing over the next few weeks — all related to this special series — and I don’t want you to miss out.
Finally, I want to wrap up today’s note by turning it over to you.
