Keeping up with news and ever-changing financial headlines is undoubtedly time-consuming. And a lot of times boring. With the amount of news and information available these days, it is hard to stay up to date. And it is even harder to filter the noise to get to what is essential. If you are like me and still appreciate newspapers, you might have the desire to sit down every morning to read the WSJ, NYT, and Washington Post top to bottom (or whatever newspaper/news source you like), but you know that is just impossible.
It doesn’t matter if you read the news to stay informed, educate yourself about something specific, or make your next financial decision; it is crucial to have a strategy to remain in the loop. My strategy? Newsletters.
If there is one thing I love doing each morning, it is to catch up on my favorite newsletters to know what is going on in the world as I start my day. It is a habit, something I do before getting out of bed. It is the best way I’ve found to get the information I need early on.
I have started to invest more, and sometimes I also dabble with day-trading. So improving my skills and getting deeper into the finance world is vital. To make better decisions, I need to know what is happening with the stock market, and I need to keep up with important news, especially those that move the market.
I’m always trying out newsletters to find the best combination of news without an overload. So I subscribe to a different mix: news, investing, and financial newsletters. I try to stick to free options or options with a low monthly cost. But if I see value in what I’m getting, I’m more than happy to commit.
Here is a list of my current favorites:
Morning Brew is one of my all-time favorites. They deliver content in an informative and easy way. Their copy is excellent, so reading about business and financial news is enjoyable instead of a drag.
Our newsletter (I run this one with my husband)! Bullish delivers important stock market info without frills. It is simple, clean, and valuable. You will get stats before the market opens and after it closes. This way, you don’t need to look for info; you consume it.
