Free Financial Websites To Check Everyday
Due to the fact that most, if not all, of the information that impact us in our daily lives is on the Internet, we can access financial information for free any time. We no longer have to call our broker to get information that was once only available to few privileged people.
I check three main financial websites everyday and they are given below:
Let us start with commodities and precious metals which include gold and silver. Probably, the best website that I can think of is of Kitco's. Its website is www.kitco.com. It is a Canadian company based in Montreal. Kitco provides the latest prices of rhodium, palladium, platinum, gold and silver. The website also has latest news and commentary on commodities and other relevant topics such as inflation. It also offers technical and fundamental analysis on gold, silver and other precious metals.
Raw statistical data is extremely use for economic research and in particular, economic forecasting. Economagic is one such website that offers us latest statistics on inflation, GDP, interest rates, employment and housing market. Its website is www.economagic.com.
You can also create your own charts by using these data and compare interest rates with inflation, GDP growth and other statistics.
My favorite financial website that is, in my opinion, useful to all of us is Yahoo Finance. Its website is finance.yahoo.com/. You can type in the ticker symbol of the company you work for and go to Message Board. You might get more information about your own employer than you already know, even things like the next layoff date! Just be careful to filter out noise and misinformation in Message Boards.
Yahoo Finance also provides links to articles provided by major news outlets. You would get the same details in Wall Street except Yahoo Finance gives the information totally free. You can also get all the information on a particular company including balance sheet, technical analysis and fundamental analysis by providing its ticker symbol.
