Top Free Sources to Find Quality Financial News – Introduction 

There are many reasons why asset prices move. A stock price can move up when insiders in the company buy the stocks in the company or when the company announces better-than-expected financial results. A currency pair could move up when the economic data from a country is better than traders are expecting while the price of a commodity could move up when the demand slows. In all this, the need for news is very important. This is because investors who are the first to receive the news usually do well than those who receive it late. In the financial market, whether you make or lose money can depend on less than a second. This is the main reason why most institutional investors are happy to pay $20,000 for the Bloomberg Terminal. Here are the best sources of news that you should use.

Bloomberg

Bloomberg is the biggest business news source in the world. The company employs more than 3000 financial journalists from around the world. These journalists are there to break stories and share their perspectives on trade. They report their content in the Bloomberg Terminal and on the Bloomberg television. While the terminal is unaffordable to many people, their websites, apps, and television is a good way to find news and opinions about the market. A few months ago, the company introduced a paywall for their content. Since this paywall is expensive, you can instead clear the cookies or reinstall the app after reaching the limit.

Reuters

Reuters is the second biggest financial services provider in the world after Bloomberg. Reuters has a market cap of more than $30 billion. The company applies the same model like Bloomberg, with most of its revenues coming from the premium subscribers of Reuters Eikon. The company has mobile apps and websites that are among the first to break news.

CNBC

CNBC is a leading financial services company owned by Comcast. The company’s TV network is among the first to report breaking news on Wall Street companies. It is also one of the most-watched financial services television network. As a trader, you should have either CNBC or Bloomberg running.

Twitter

These days, Twitter is the fastest news network in the world. People go there to share news and information on various topics. Journalists post the news there before they post in their networks. Twitter is also an ideal place to find ‘hidden news stories.’ These are stories that are hard to discover, especially those from very local news sources. For example, a major news story from a small country might not make it in big platforms like Bloomberg.

Reddit

Like Twitter, Reddit is an important place to find hidden news stories. While it is known for its focus on weird stories, many investors use it to find quality news stories from a wide variety of news sources.

Stocktwits

Stocktwits is a financial service of Twitter. In it, investors from around the world share the content about finance and their projections. This is a good website to find a wide variety of crowdsourced materials.
