Each night, following the close of the markets, price data (on a closed basis) is imported from various data sources and then compiled with our proprietary models to generate the analyses across different time levels. The analysis across all Covered Markets is then updated in the Ask-Socrates web platform through the course of that night.

You may purchase a Market Snapshot Report for analysis on any Covered Market that is accessible in your membership level by using Market Access Credits, or you can add a Market Subscription to your membership for recurring access to that analysis, using any of the following means:

  • Click on the name of any market in your Watchlist.
  • Click on the name of any market listed in various sections of the Global Market Watch.
  • Go into the Purchase page and search for a Market
  • Each time you click on one of these, you will be asked to confirm your intent to purchase the Analysis before the purchase goes through.

If you cannot find the instrument you seek, then please submit it to us for possible inclusion via the contact page.

  1. Please provide all of the following information about the instrument that you are requesting that we add:
    • Full Name
    • Symbol
    • Type (future, forex, equity, ETF, etc)

  2. We will consider your submission and decide whether to include the instrument based on our criteria and general interest.

If you have purchased a Market Snahpshot report(one-time, limited access) with Market Access Credits (MACs), it will be available on the main page for that market ONLY until Ask-Socrates updates that specific analysis again (i.e. if it is a Daily analysis report you purchased one-time access to, you won’t be able to access this on the market main page once the next day’s analysis report is generated). Keep in mind, after the Ask-Socrates system updates the analysis, then you can still access any analysis you have purchased by going to your “My Account” page and then selecting "My Snapshot Reports" section.

Note, for any Market Subscription on your membership account, you will have recurring access to the level of analysis you subscribed to until your membership ends, or you cancel a given Market Subscription.
