Dow Jones, Standard and Poor's, and now Domain Price Index Sedo partners with developer to build a market price index or indicator Webwork msg:4445298 2:08 pm on Apr 25, 2012 (gmt 0) Credit for breaking the news (to me, at least) goes to [ ] DomainNameNews.com. domainnamenews.com Sedo's explanation: [ ] sedo.com
Sedo has partnered with entrepreneur and researcher Thies Lindenthal to develop the first standard price index for domain names. More than 6 years of domain sales transaction data from Sedo, coupled with Lindenthal’s expertise in real estate research – a field in which he holds a PhD – makes IDNX is the first quantitative analysis of domain market sales that takes into account the inherent quality of domains, and compares the trends in transacted domains to those of other economic indices such as the NASDAQ. The developer's index site is here: [ ] idnx.com I guess this accomplishes a few things: Creates publicity for Sedo Puts "some data" out there Gives bored folks, domainers and perhaps data junkies something else to study What the index doesn't capture are all the sales that never go reported, which to the best of my understanding and experience, continues to be a significant percentage of deals.
