My ‘Go To’ Websites
The first thing I look at in the morning (after my husbands obnoxious bed head of course) are futures on http://finance.yahoo.com/. It is also a great place to find market news, earning dates, economic reports coming out and of course news on specific stocks.
Another site I like to use for futures is http://money.cnn.com. What I like most about this site though is the speed at which they post economic reports, major news and statements from fed meetings. This is a must ‘go to’ when there are numbers coming out or the fed is going to issue a statement at a certain time. They seem to post a quick summary in red at the top of the screen where with other sites I seem to have to search for that same news/report.
For a great FREE customizable stock chart check out www.freestockcharts.com. This site is amazing. At first glance and looks and feels just like Telechart. In fact it’s run by the same company it’s just their free version. It gives you a chance to get a feel for Telechart before deciding if you’d like to use the paid premium version.
For a simple quick run down of what’s to come that day http://thestreet.com has a summary posted in the morning that gives a run down on futures and what news items are driving them, what the foreign markets did over night, any economic reports coming out and any major companies that have earnings.
A while ago a fellow NVOWS trader who stopped by stocktradingjourney suggested I check out 1option.com. Every trading day Pete Stolcers writes a market summary that is usually dead on. It’s timely and will save you at times from having to wait for Market Alerts in your email that sometimes never come.
How ‘bout you? What websites do you find yourself visiting again and again?
