This one is for all you Englishmen (and women) out there. Don't worry, we didn't forget about you. As you already know, England has a complex financial ecosystem and no one covers it better than the Economist. Unlike Bloomberg and Forbes, the Economist delivers the most in-depth news on the U.K. around. It even does global issues as well but the specialty of this organization revolves around England. Keep in mind, this is no place for fun. Sure, finance can be fun at times but as its name suggests, the Economist is all about the economy. And that's it.
Hold on, English people. Don't go away just yet. We are not finished with your part of the world. While the Economist is the top choice for financial news in the U.K., don't forget about the Financial Times (or FT as they call it). Let's give the publication some credit for its business news section. It is certainly wonderful at it. However, FT has a little secret. Besides business news, FT has a terrific political section. Bloomberg and Forbes definitely dabble in politics from time to time but the FT thrives off of it. Politics and economics are connected in ways you never thought possible. FT reveals all that in more. Even if you aren't a U.K. citizen, this one is worth a read.
Everyone knows about the economy but what about the "Xconomy?" Is that some weird, financial themed version of the X-Men? Yeah, you wish. In reality, XConomy.com is a provider of news in the realms of business and technology. In comparison, Forbes and Bloomberg seem a little more "snobby" than the millennial driven XConomy. Everyone knows that technology is a large part of the economy but do you know the ins and outs of it? Do you know how AI will affect the employment rate? Will 3D printed food change the fast food industry? These are all good questions and if you want to find the answers, you should definitely check XConomy.com. Don't let its European market fool you, this website is very much globally minded.
Hold the IBS jokes. This is serious here. IBTimes is the official website of International Business Times. Yeah, it says "International" right there in the title but the specialty of this website is actually American business news. Here, you'll find all sorts of tech and financial news that covers the U.S. market. However, if you're an internationally minded person, IBTimes won't disappoint you. You'll find international topics ranging from business, cryptocurrency, media and more on the front page of IBT.
Capitalism is a lot of things. But what about naked? Seriously though, whats the story behind the name at NakedCapitalism? Well, as you probably already guessed, this is no Forbes or Bloomberg type of operation. Unlike Forbes and Bloomberg, NakedCapitalism is more of a community. Here, bloggers meet up and share their opinion with others. The topics range from the economy to politics but you'd be surprised what else you can find on here. There is certainly a place for the Forbes and Bloomberg websites of the world. However, if you're in the mood for something a little more free-form and underground, don't sleep on this one.
Ok, settle down. Get all your Yahoo jokes out the way while you can. Finished? Probably not. No one will ever stop joking about Yahoo but the least we can do is respect Finance.Yahoo. Check out all the great features found here. For example, you can manage your stock portfolio, get stock quotes, up to date news, mortgage rates, international market data and much more. Furthermore, there is even a message board where people can get together and make fun of Yahoo. Just kidding. Mostly, they share investing stories and offer andy financial advice to those that need it. You won't find that on Forbes and Bloomberg. But then again, Forbes and Bloomberg might actually be around in a few years so it looks like they get the last laugh.
You can watch the market on Bloomberg and Forbes but why bother when there are sites like MarketWatch.com? Here, you can follow all the latest financial news and view real-time stock market updates. MarketWatch.com understands the process of stock market investing can be very addicting. If you're one of those people that are constantly checking their phone for the latest stock updates then MarketWatch.com is something you need in life. It's a little more niche than Forbes and Bloomberg news but sometimes, niche is just what you need.
