WHAT IS THE SEVENS REPORT?
The Sevens Report is everything you need to know about the markets by 7AM each morning, in 7 minutes or less. It was created by former New York Stock Exchange trader Tom Essaye to help financial professionals and self-directed investors eliminate the information overload they face daily, and to provide comprehensive, essential, and succinct macro-economic analysis and daily coverage of all markets:
STOCKS | BONDS | COMMODITIES | CURRENCIES | ECONOMIC DATA
We cut through the noise every morning to give you the critical overnight information across asset classes, so you can save time and start your day right.
Idea generation is a core attribute of the Sevens Report, and we name specific ETFs we think can outperform based on our analysis.
We follow both the fundamentals and technicals and make sure our subscribers know key levels and trends for all new assets (not just stocks).
Analysis is useful only when its actionable — that's why we tell you WHAT happened, WHY it's important, and HOW you can use it to outperform for you or your clients.
