I read a lot of stock market resources and my two favourite subjects are global finance and politics.
I do not know what happened to me in my youth to make me interested in topics viewed as dull and uninteresting by a lot of people.
I just cannot get excited about who the next X factor winner is or who on Easterners is sleeping with who.
News flow matters and what you read is a reflection of what you care about.
Here are the three stock market resources I read most often:
These guys are without doubt the best independent UK stock market researchers and value finders on the web. Headed by Tom Winnifrith and staffed by a well experienced group of researchers, Shareprophets makes sure that shareholders and the wider investing public are made aware of the frankly casino-like nature AIM listed companies behaviour.
Luckily they also uncover value that independent investors (myself included) use as a basis for further research.
Subscription is free and once a year you can meet the guys and girls behind Shareprophets at the UK Investors Show which is held every year in April.
To help me keep my finger on the pulse of the UK and global financial markets I use Feedly to pull in financial news feeds.
BBC Business news is the first one on my list simply because their business articles are short enough to cover what I need without bombarding me with dross. Their blog page layout lets me scan business news headlines quickly allowing me to choose which ones I want to read and which ones I can ignore.
I have major issues with the BBC’s political coverage which is skewed towards an globalist politically correct agenda which is why for political news I read…
Global politics is inextricably linked to global business and I have not found a better website that covers both of these issues in as much depth and independence than Tyler Durden (the website owner’s alias).
What is brilliant about Zero Hedge is that not only does Tyler contribute his own articles to the site (which of themselves are extremely informative) but the website also showcases articles from other ‘counter current’ news sites that are just as or even more though-provoking that Tyler’s articles.
If you are tired of the gloablists at the BBC (and mainstream media as a whole) and want to know get closer to real ideas or tell your children more about the truth of the world then get them to read Zero Hedge.
Did I miss any valuable and informative sources of financial market, global financial and political news?
