Hello Fellow Traders
Each morning over a cup of coffee I've got Sky News Business blaring on the TV, the AFR & Australian Newspaper (with online WSJ) on my computer, broker reports, daily email summaries and other financial news that in all honesty would take a week to read in full.
I find I'm spending more and more time reading and watching television than I am actually trading. This might not necessarily be a bad thing however it's getting to the point where I'm struggling to get past 11:00am without a migraine from trying to digest all this information.
The Bull previously was the BEST source of free information but since early this year has began charging for a premium service. I haven't yet decided if it's worth the $400 or so per annum subscription fee. AFR online looks great but I'm yet to see an iPhone app that would be reliable enough to cover breaking news. I'd love to have a professional Bloomberg service but the price is way out of my league.
We've entered a new age where information is freely available - but sorting through the crap is extremely time consuming. Personally, I've resorted to using Twitter and I'm surprised at the speed and accuracy media agencies such as Bloomberg, New York Times, Financial Times and various brokers release headlines.
Is there anybody out there that can help me find a simple, daily email or website summarising the world's financial news in an independent manner?
I think I'm asking the impossible - but I'd be interested to hear other people's opinions.
