MarketsNow was founded to provide a high quality, yet easy-to-use, source for financial market analysis. While there is no shortage of media companies that cover financial news in general, few can explain how developments in financial markets are relevant for the things that people care about. In particular, MarketsNow aims to answer common questions, such as:

  • Why is gold falling given that there is so much uncertainty in the world today?
  • What is the likely future direction of the euro against the British pound?
  • Why did the US dollar drop recently?

MarketsNow aims to answer such questions in a way that better conveys the story behind what is driving the markets, and what’s next. High-quality financial content is both limited and hard to find, and MarketsNow aims to change the status quo. By empowering you with the best information, we aim to help you make better decisions.
