Financial reading website with regular updates

Post by FB01 » Fri Aug 17, 2012 10:56 am

Hi,

I guess the post may be discussed before but which is best financial websites where there are daily updates or some reading. There are some good available but those have updates in one week or sometime more than that.

Would appreciate if anyone can give their suggestions

My suggestion is to not read any daily financial websites. They all specialize in noise, just like the rest of the 24 hour news cycle.

If you want to stay up-to-date on macroeconomic trends and financial news, read The Economist.

I agree. There is a lot of filler posted to those sites.

I use morningstar and wsj and sometimes bloomberg and kiplinger. Regardless of what type investor you are I think it is good to stay abreast of what is happening in financial world.

Bloomberg is pretty good most of the time.

The amount I've learned in here over about a month is probably more than I've learned in the past 5-10 years in terms of personal financial planning. Finding more advanced personal financial planning information beyond the basics in regular financial literature (WSJ, etc) is pretty rare.

Matt Levine @ Bloomberg View. The upshot is he links to almost everything of interest happening in finance and markets. Oh, and very little time is spent discussing the stock market level.

This site is, hands down, the BEST investment/retirement site i have found. I also use Morningstar for technical purposes (daily index numbers) and to read some of the editors general comments. I used to get some of the mutual fund mags, but stopped when i saw they were repeating themselves over and over.

Ditto. Bogleheads.org greatly changed my investing philosophy, and more importantly my confidence and success at it.
There is some noise here, but it tends be well-intentioned and food for thought, rather than an urgent emotional plea for action.

Thanks, I like it.
Obviously one would like a more complete analysis that considers both the cost of raising children and their payout later in life, and tries to compute an internal rate of return. But as is so often the case in financial management, most prospective parents will need to build their child-investment models based on incomplete information and rough estimates of future cash flows.

Besides the aforementioned Matt Levine, Abnormal Returnswww.abnormalreturns.com is an excellent daily linkfest of mostly finance-related content.
