About Markman Capital Insight

Markman Capital Insight is an independent investment research firm focused on helping individuals and institutions take more and smarter risks in equity, options and futures trading.

Founder and chief executive Jon D. Markman and his team leverage three decades of trading and portfolio management practice, software industry work, and business journalism experience to provide easy-to-read daily and weekly newsletters that educate, entertain and enrich customers who seek to sidestep the overpriced pros on Wall Street and economically manage their own portfolios for retirement in the future and speculation now.

Markman and his team believe that ordinary people from all walks of life can learn to turn both bear and bull markets to their advantage by learning to time and exploit the ebbs and flows of market sentiment, global finance, commodity scarcity, corporate earnings and technological developments.
