1. The Daily Market Brief 

The Daily Market Brief is an in-depth market analysis published each trading day before US market open.

KISS Market Report 

The KISS Report is authored by Mella and is completely separate from the Daily Market Brief. While Mella and Sven coordinate on overall strategy they never discuss each others reports ahead of time. The intent is to keep themselves unbiased in their analysis.

Mella focuses exclusively on technical charts and swing set-ups across multiple asset classes. Mella’s chart work also identifies the big market turns along with intermediate trade set-ups being a key part of her service.

While her directional input is included in the Daily Market Brief her specific charts are not. Her updates include an overall broader market direction, including Europe at key turning points, as well as key securities such as gold, crude, etc, and additional focus includes the USD, the Yen and the Euro. The Kiss Market Report is published 1-2 times a week depending on market conditions (more updates during critical market phases).

The KISS Market Report offers a broader view of the general markets while the SetUp Stream focuses exclusively on high conviction swing trade opportunities.

For a sample of the KISS Market Report please see: Example
