The business was born in 1998 and has been producing the Marcus Today Newsletter for thousands of subscribers each day, a Newsletter designed to do two things for you:

  • Make subscribers money - The Marcus Today Mission Statement.
  • Inform, Explain, Educate and Entertain - The Marcus Today website not only delivers the newsletter but contains resources including unique educational articles and a 300 stock database.

A subscription to Marcus Today gives you access to the daily 'email' with its news summary and recommendations that tells it like it is and speaks your language. Includes Current Recommended portfolio, Current Trades, Technical section, Stock Database, and our Education section which includes a host of articles about the stockmarket telling you things that you won't read in any financial product marketing brochure. A true insight to the way the Stockmarket really works.

Marcus Today offers subscribers honesty and practical advice. This is the culture of Marcus Today and we hope that a quick glance at our product will inspire you to subscribe. Nowhere else will you find people in the financial industry telling it as it is.
