I find myself often googling to check S&P futures so this email would remove that step for me. Might also be cool if the email had other features like Tax Loss Harvest notifications when an ETF you're watching drops more than X%.
I did some research on the finance newsletter space myself a while back, here's some of my favorites I ran across:
• https://capitalminded.com (more long term index fund focused)
• https://verdadcap.com (more nerdy quant/value stuff)
• Matt Levine's Money Stuff (couldn't find the sign up link but it's always great)
• https://www.finimize.com (general news)
• https://www.epsilontheory.com (somewhat annoying but also interesting at times)
• https://www.aqr.com/Insights/Perspectives (value/quant stuff from a billionaire hedge fund manager)
Tried Robinhood Snacks but can't get over the feeling it's written by low paid interns and doesn't offer any actual insight, just condensed mainstream narratives.
It has extensive technical indicators which can be handy.
I don't think you have to hang out on r/wsb to have an ounce of irony about wallstreet in you.
p.s. you can replace Google's captcha with hCaptcha ;) https://dev.to/stanbright/cloudflare-replaced-recaptcha-with...
> The idea is for the mailing list to go out every weekday before the market opens so you can be informed enough to decide if it’s worth paying close attention to the market on any given day and make some moves.
Looks like the behaviors this information is intended to induce is:
1. Gather more data more frequently (reload WSJ / Y! finance? front page?)
2. Make more trades ("Buy High, Sell Low")
If SP500 futures moving but markets are closed, what action could you possibly undertake profitably? Market open is a special auction you can't really arbitrage like that, so you'd be hoping for intraday moves? Are these the behaviors you _want_ to be inducing? Should retail investors be making trades during times of high volatility?
I suspect no; retail investors will buy into rallies and sell into slumps, exactly the behavior Bullish's tagline mocks.
That’s always been a bugaboo of mine as it makes a big difference over decade+ time frames.

Love the simple project idea & execution. I'm working on my own side-project during this isolation period, and your blog post is helping to inspire and motivate.
Update: $15/month is good for up to 50K emails. Not 100K as I initially said.
"Typoglycemia" is a real (if poorly understood and researched) human phenomenon, and it's definitely at play here: https://observer.com/2017/03/chunking-typoglycemia-brain-con...
Love that tongue-in-cheek accent.
For something more detailed with top headlines, big movers, earnings highlights, etc. I really recommend the "Wall Street Breakfast" newsletter from seekingalpha.com.
I only focus on index data so it's a bit easier but it's still hard. Lots of scraping, downloading and parsing CSVs, Excel sheets, some puppeteer magic...
Some sources that I use:
- MSCI data (https://www.msci.com/end-of-day-data-search)
- Financial Times website (e.g. https://markets.ft.com/data/indices/tearsheet/summary?s=SP5M...)
- Investing.com (e.g. https://www.investing.com/indices/us-spx-500)
- FTSE for FTSE stock indexes (https://research.ftserussell.com/analytics/indexviewer/chart...)
- Yieldbook.com for FTSE bond indxes
- ICE website for ICE bond indexes
I'm constantly adding new indexes and sources (see https://backtest.curvo.eu/updates) but it's tough!
Some examples of what Backtest does:
- MSCI World: https://backtest.curvo.eu/portfolio/NoIgsgygwgkgBAdQPYCcA2AT...
- My portfolio: https://backtest.curvo.eu/portfolio/NoIgmg9gTghgdgcgM4AIAK0A...
If the author has any questions, just reach out to me! Happy to share my experiences.
We recently launched an investing newsletter at https://topstonks.com (just got our first paying customer yesterday), which tracks the social sentiment angle of a few weird places on the internet - WallstreetBets and 4chan.
We're definitely still learning the ropes, but Let me know if you ever want to talk shop!
I like it a lot more than The Morning Brew.
The Morning Brew's jokes get too obscure and make it hard to read.
Caleb does a much better job than the Brew IMO.
Hopefully things change, but over the years, I've become allergic to subscribing to anything by email – I'd rather go to a website when I want to
Anyway, after reading this, just went ahead and implemented my thing too.
In my case I just need to monitor a specific instrument, a few lines of code were enough after figuring out how to use the underlying libraries.
IEX is pretty good with the markets they give access to, so you should be able to find most symbols (or comparable) you're looking to track.
Would be nice to make use of the subject line more so I might not even have to open to email (yes more minimalist!)
DJ +0.22% | S&P +1.2% | ...
Building something end-to-end is a valuable experience, even if the end result might appear outwardly "simple".
It sends buy/sell emails to users every morning(see below for links to screenshots)
Is there a need for something like in the US/elsewhere ?
OP did a Show HN a few hours ago: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=22867313
This article seemed to be a deep dive into how the project came to be.
