Economic Alchemy LLC is a financial technology innovation company, dedicated to creating innovative solutions to the most vexing problems facing the economy and financial markets today.

Our first solution, Now-Cast® Data Corp., solves the “Rear-view Mirror” problem: Government economic data are published with a significant lag of weeks or even months. The government can only tell you what is happening in the economy now at a much later point in time. Investors, business leaders, and policy makers need to know what is happening now, NOW. Real-time decision-making needs real-time information.

Now-Cast® Data Corp. is a Big Data analytics company that has created the world’s first and only real-time streaming economic prediction platform. The Now-Cast® system combines Big Data, machine learning, and sophisticated econometrics in a fully automated, algorithmic framework that monitors the globe for economic risk signals and instantaneously calculates their impact on a live, minute-by-minute basis.
