The Monday readers mail bag from the Simple Dollar - keeps me grounded and things in perspective

Mr Moneymustache - unfortunately he got rich and is rarely posting anymore. And if he does its more philosophical then actionable information

The bogleheads obviously (based on the questions posted you can actually deduce how the market is doing without even looking)

Otherwise trying to avoid the 'market news' distractions

Yes, I have a no cost account to be able to read their articles, see fund information, to use their free Portfolio Manager and use their free Instant X-Ray. I do not use their premium services which require a fee.

I used my frequent flyer miles to get a subscription to the Financial Times ePaper, and it's highly educational.

I have the Flipboard App. Set up Retirement as a category and have so many articles to choose from. Some worthy and some not.

This forum has provided me with countless perspectives useful in managing my financial affairs !

Another helpful resource for me has been "Nerd's Eye View" --> https://www.kitces.com/

For news, I probably check cnbc.com more than any other site.

In terms of impact on my day to day activity, slickdeals.net of course!

Zerohedge.com

Zero Hedge or ZeroHedge is described as a "markets-focused" blog, that presents both in-house analysis, and analysis from investment banks, hedge funds, and other investment writers and analysts. Zero Hedge, per its motto, is bearish in its investment outlook and analysis, often deriving from its adherence to the Austrian School of economics and credit cycles. While often labeled as a financial permabear, Zero Hedge is also seen as a source of "cutting-edge news, rumors and gossip about the financial industry".

Some libraries offer premium content from Morningstar for their library card holders. Check to see if your library is one of those.

(The Hennepin County Library system - Minneapolis and its suburbs - offers this service.)

MarketWatch

Where else can you see "This is what the net worth of the world’s elite would look like if Elizabeth Warren’s tax plan had been in effect since 1982"? (ans. absolutely fine)

Nothing on the site is really actionable though. They present a variety of views (go small value, use market timing, bullish on US large tech companies, EM will have good returns, Chinese companies are going bankrupt etc. etc.). There is no way to figure out what to do from the site.

I pretty much only visit these sites:

Yahoo finance
seekingalpha
bogleheads

Occasionally visit Nasdaq.com for other historical info, but that is it.
