A Market Intelligence Company

Financial markets are more difficult to understand than ever before.

We’re here to change that.

MarketReader is a market intelligence company that empowers all investors to understand why the market is moving in real time.

Founded in 2021 by experts in economics, trading, and financial technology, MarketReader will provide clear, objective explanations of asset price movement in a way that is accessible to all types of investors, from retail to institutional.

The MarketReader Vision

Leveraging our prior experience building predictive tools and providing award-winning research, the MarketReader team has applied innovative empirical analysis to create a tool that pinpoints the reason for asset price movement as it is happening, in near real-time. In short, MarketReader explains the market rather than trying to predict it.

A primary reason for MarketReader’s existence comes down to a fundamental truth: not all investors have access to the high quality financial information they need to truly understand the market.

By building tools that use complex, high-frequency technology to surface market insights that would ordinarily require a team of analysts to identify, MarketReader democratizes access to such information and empowers each individual investor to understand why the market is moving—to gain “market literacy.” We are excited to level the playing field among market participants by enabling all investors to understand financial markets.

Team

MarketReader was founded by experienced leaders in economics, finance, and technology to provide retail investors with a new kind of tool to understand the market.
