Equity Research

Momentum Securities Corp provides independent equity market research for both professional and individual investors. We update our database daily to provide users of the website and our subscribers with the most up to date information. Our independence is what separates us from the traditional bank sponsored or brokerage research. We have absolutely no relationship with any publicly traded company. We do not underwrite or promote any company's stock and are not paid to conduct research on any publicly traded company.

Technical Analysis

Our research begins with price discovery and the supply/demand characteristics that are fundamental to any market. The basis of our research is very different from many typical Wall Street or Bay Street analysts whom often use one of two methodologies. The first being a “top down” approach where global factors (economies, demographics, market cycles, etc.) dominate the investment thesis. Or the second, a “bottom up" approach where indvidual company financial statements and trends in these statements (revenue, earnings per share, etc.) form the basis of their investment thesis. Here at Momentum Securities Corp, our thesis begins with the market in of itself, the basis of a market are the supply and demand factors.
