5 Information Sources All Traders Should Follow and Understand

Investors have no shortage of information available to them.  In fact, the sheer magnitude of it all can be overwhelming.  The key to informing yourself isn’t just a matter of finding information.  It’s finding the right information and doing it quickly and conveniently. 

Life is too busy to spend all day trying to sift through all the fluff to discover what you need to know. Moreover, you must understand how to use each source of information to its greatest potential.  After all, there’s a big difference between the type of statement you’ll find in a company’s own press release and what you’ll learn from a third party stock analysis.


Get to the heart of the matter by learning the 5 top sources of information for traders and how you can use them to make informed investing decisions.

1. Newsfeeds and Social Accounts

One of the fastest and easiest ways to keep on top of the very latest, when it comes to companies or markets you’re tracking, is to follow newsfeeds and social accounts.  This habit can help to ensure that you’re alerted whenever your subject of interest makes it into the headlines.  Just be sure to use reliable news sources like Yahoo.

Create alerts for yourself and be sure to follow top news sources and individual companies on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and your other social media accounts. This habit allows complex algorithms to do the work for you, immediately bringing the headlines you want to your attention.

2. Company Reports and Information

Public companies continually release a wealth of information in the form of reports, releases, announcements and even their own blogs.  By keeping an eye on these publications, you’ll be able to see what these firms have to say about their recent achievements, upcoming moves and the targets they are setting for themselves.

Whether you want to see what Facebook was able to achieve last year or what it has up its sleeve for the next quarter, these reports and releases are the official source for that information.

Similarly, if you’re curious as to what Amazon plans to do next to shake up the Internet of Things and how its top rivals plan to respond, the companies’ own reports can be highly informative. Just keep in mind that these documents are always designed to shine their companies in the brightest light.

3. Brokers and Trading Hubs

Beyond headlines, reports and forecasts, viewing the cold hard facts in the form of the latest numbers can fill in many blanks in making investment decisions.  Use a trading and investing hub as a central source of exchange rates, stock information and other figures that show you the direction your current and possible future investments are taking.

Beyond trading hubs, you can also identify a broker (read our full guide) to discover the right one to help direct your investing decisions with knowledge and skilled strategy.

4.  Analysis Articles

Reading the best analysis articles provides you with condensed information on a stock’s earnings, growth rates, dividend yield and other key factors to help steer you toward the right choices and away from those that are better left alone.

Find a small handful of highly reliable analysis article sources and check in on them regularly.  Better yet, subscribe to the sites so you will receive alerts when there are new posts, if that option is available. Look for well reputed resources that publish hundreds of articles on a monthly basis.  With these articles, you can feel confident that you’ll stay on top of the latest and will have what you need to spot the right choices at the best time.

5. Research Conducted by Finance Giants

International finance and investment firms produce their own reports to help guide investors over the short and long term.  These publications, such as this report by Credit Suisse for 2018, provide a helpful outlook into the coming months compiled by some of the top experts in the world.  Recommendations are based on specific past and present trends and their predicted effect on the future.

This type of document gives a broad overview that can help to suggest strong potential decisions.  The guidance provided can be further tuned using the other information sources on this list.

With these top 5 sources of information, traders can equip themselves with the accurate figures, trends, announcements and details they need for informed, well-timed investment decisions.
