Our Service

We provide comprehensive coverage of global financial markets shaped by more than 20 years of experience providing technical strategy research to institutional clients. Our views are aggregated in a weekly report that covers equities, commodities, currencies, and Treasuries, including in-depth comments and easy-to-read charts. Each report consists of specific stock and ETF recommendations designed for idea generation. All subscribers also receive a daily report covering technical catalysts, high-conviction signals, and market internal measures. For Access Plan and Premium Plan subscribers, we provide weekly sector “deep dives” that compile important indicator data for stocks compared against their peers, including commentary to facilitate market timing.

Beyond the written product, we offer specialized high-touch services to Access Plan and Premium Plan subscribers, who can access our team via calls, meetings, and emails/IB for responsive analysis in a dynamic market environment. Active traders and money managers use these proprietary services to identify catalysts and action items specific to their watchlists or portfolios. Premium Plan services range from portfolio analysis and chartbooks to custom filters and scans. We are available for “teach-ins” regarding project work, providing full disclosure of our methodology.
