What my readers say
“You are a very good analyst and the most coherent I’ve seen over many years as an outsider. Knowing very little of your precise metrics…I just get a vibe that people are feeling better, even in our industry where skepticism abounds.”
Larry KirshbaumFormer President - Amazon Publishing
“Peter Kenny of Knight, who was a great help to our efforts at the NYSE, writes a morning note for investors each day which I find among the best in the marketplace.”
Robert ZitoCEO Zito Partners Global Brand Consulting
My “go to” read well before the opening bell.
Peter’s morning commentary concisely and sharply defines the metrics which will determine the market’s mood, momentum and direction for the trading session. If you could only read one morning market letter this should be the choice.”
Dick GrassoFormer CEO & Chairman NYSE
Pete – Your morning note is a must read for me, because it integrates insightful global political, fundamental and trading outlooks. I also appreciate receiving opinions from other strategists that you share, as I benefit from alternative perspectives or commentaries on areas I don’t have the time or expertise to evaluate.

The majority of the daily published markets pieces are a commodity. Peter continues to differentiate himself because he’s connected to the markets, it’s been a part of his DNA his entire life and that’s what comes across. He provides me and his followers with a concise, well thought out analysis, as well as an informed opinion. There’s no cutting and pasting, it’s all Peter’s wisdom and experience. A daily must read for me to start the day.
Mark FlahertyFormer Vice Chairman, Wellington Management
“Your morning note is required reading for all of the guys on my desk and provides tremendous insight into both macro and micro market themes. Your observations and insights are instrumental in our client conversations and provide a foundation to start each day. In addition, your ability to connect complicated market themes with a human element is very much appreciated.”

“Peter, Thanks for the work on the morning notes. I see a lot of failed attempts just reiterating this up, that down however your work is explanatory, concise, global, multi asset and most importantly consistent. Thank you.”
