I'm thinking about a motto (slogan) for a company which is trying to give its customers a complete view of the market. I'm thinking of this motto:

Everything, Everywhere, Under your sight

Is it grammatically correct? I mean, can we use under for sight?

No. Things can by within [someone's] sight/hearing, but not under it. I think that's basic General Reference. –  FumbleFingers Oct 8 '12 at 12:34

Also, there's no Need to capitalize Random words like That. Title case or sentence case, pick one and then stick to it. –  RegDwigнt Oct 8 '12 at 14:30
    
Under your control, yes, but not everything under your sight. –  Affable Geek Oct 8 '12 at 15:11

It does not really work. To me, under my sight actually sounds like it's hidden from me. It's similar to the expression right under my nose, which implies that something is in front of you but you can't see it.

There's not really such a thing as complete market view, to be had. The company could certainly hope to provide lots of market insights or even an analysis. As long as you're open to suggestions, I think that something around enablement or empowering of the clients would be more effective. I suggest "hone/zero in on best stocks" or something along those lines.
