Daily Reckoning

If you’ve made your way onto this page, odds are that you’re new to The Daily Reckoningand would like a little background… or perhaps you’re one of our long-suffering readers in need of a reminder of why you’ve stuck with us through the years. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. At The Daily Reckoning, we’ve been in the business of independent financial forecasting since 1999. We take a look at the world and markets, make an educated guess about where they’re headed and alert you to ways we think you can protect yourself and profit from the trends that the mainstream press has overlooked. Our metier is forecasting booms, busts and bad endings on your behalf… patting you on the back when you do well by them… and owning up to it when we make hash of it. It’s your money, after all. Each day that the markets are open, we have the honor and privilege of writing to subscribers of our free daily e-letter with one big idea. One way you can profit from and make sense of (or at the very least, laugh at) the world of finance, economics and politics. We publish your Daily Reckonings, sent by email, each and every afternoon. If you haven’t signed up yet, I urge you to do so right here. And don’t worry. It’s 100% free — no credit card is required. For a decade and a half, we’ve aimed to make these reckonings the most entertaining and informative 15-minute read of your day — and we still do. But we must admit that we haven’t done it...
