Where Can I Read A Daily Summary of Financial News?

Post by investor.saver1 » Sat Oct 20, 2012 11:38 am

Does anyone have a recommendation for an internet site that publishes a concise summary of the day's financial news...and of course is FREE?

This topic is now in the Personal Consumer Issues forum (websites, blogs, etc.).
Wiki To some, the glass is half full. To others, the glass is half empty. To an engineer, it's twice the size it needs to be.

I like Bloomberg's "quickview" (tab second from left, on the top). First thing in the morning, before the market opens, gives you a snapshot of financial news, the futures markets, foreign markets, you name it.

The rest of the site provides interesting commentary on various and sundry. Pleasantly few ads and easy navigation.

If you wish to by-pass the Bloomberg home page (recommended; it's very cluttered, in my opinion), here is the direct link to "quickview":
