What does EWI do?

We analyze and forecast financial markets all over the world. This is how we make a living.

We have observed that outside events such as the economy and politics -- where most people focus -- are useless in forecasting stock prices. We analyze internal market behavior, because it telegraphs future trends.

You can access services for casual investors all the way up to daily and intraday analysis for professionals.

Regional investors who want in-depth research and forecasts can choose from US, Asian-Pacific, European or Global coverage. Active traders and Market Professionals can choose to have intensive coverage of the markets they follow. We also have a service dedicated to commodity traders.

What makes EWI unique?

We have developed a new theory of financial behavior and social causality, called socionomics. This perspective is more thought-provoking and reasoned than anything you will read from other financial publishers. Our analysis of cultural trends is one reason subscribers stay with us for decades.

Our monthly financial services employ socionomic analysis, and you can enhance your experience by reading our monthly analysis of world events from this unique perspective.

Do you give market alerts?

If you want alerts when the markets reach high-confidence junctures, we do that, too. Just access our Flash service.
