I had someone ask me about sites that can provide some|
info on how the overseas markets are doing overnight.
Here are a few sites that are helpful:
This yahoo page gives a rundown of global stock
exchanges and bourses
it's available as an option on their main market info
as you can see they also have a reuters feed with a 10
minute delay and significant news and market impact events
Bloomberg has 24 hour coverage and they show developments
in the equity,debt and currency markets, as well as
as we can see a significant development is the possible
EU central bank increase. This will put some upward
pressure on the euro, which may have made a very important
low for the year on May 4th and 19th.
the London Financial Times site is excellent and free
and they have submenus where you can get all types of
breaking global info....and get a non-US perspective which
is very essential at times.
we have rallies in most Japanese stocks as of this posting
Global business news
Main Web Page.
The WSJ has nice global coverage, it is a subscription site.
I really love it and it's only 29.00 a year if you subscribe to barron's or the print WSJ or 59 or 69 dollars
without a subscription.
They have a really great search feature and you can access
their Asian and European editions, as well as their regional sections etc.
This site tells you what's up in the futures markets and
has overnight electronic trading included
and the CME can keep you up to speed.
on all trading sessions.
So that's a bit of a rundown. I will probably think
of some other places, as this is just off the top of my
