We provide award winning trade ideas on financial markets. Professional analysis, quality market sentiment and technical analysis research are specifically designed for the individual trader and investor whether they are independent or working in a financial institution. Our research covers over 25 different financial instruments from major equity indices, commodities and spot foreign exchange (FX) over two trading horizons – daily and medium term and over three time zones - European, US & Asian/Pacific.
In 2007 PIA-first was formed as an independent research firm to better serve institutional clients' needs and is used by fund managers, hedge funds and central banks. We have continued to develop and grow by employing analysts with extensive financial market knowledge, experience and technical analysis ability gained at major UK financial institutions. Our proprietary and innovative research has produced a track record of trade ideas across asset classes. Coupled with what we believe to be an intuitive easy to use dashboard and a commitment to getting our trade ideas across in a timely manner, we have regularly won awards for our research over the years.
Our proprietary analysis is focused on assisting the global trader by exploiting price behaviour during each individual time-frame. The European trading day commences for us at 07:00 UK time, with US session reports from 14:00 UK time and Asian reports from 17:00 UK time.
The PIA-first analysts apply their unique analytical methodology from early in the european session onwards and deliver to subscribers their analysis and trading ideas for each financial instrument covered. We aim to deliver this information in a timely manner prior to the busiest periods of trading for each major global session. Subscribers to our service get access to an IOS app and email alerts directly to their inbox because we know the importance of delivering timely trade ideas.
Throughout the trading day, the analysts carefully monitor each trading strategy and continually assess market conditions and their likely impact on the day's trade ideas. Using their experience and knowledge, the analysts provide updates for each live trading strategy (until 16:30 hrs UK time). These trading strategy updates are posted in real time and are an integral part of our service.
