Financial News and Speculating

Most financial news is repetition of sound bites provided by the stock exchanges and brokers.

If you are watching the financial news as it happens you will see “reasons” for the market's activity rise and fall with the markets.

An event happens – the market goes up – positive spin is generated. The same market then drops quickly – the spin stops and reverses. By the end of the day the market is back up – and the nightly financial news spins the old positive take on the markets one more time.

You will not learn why the markets are acting a particular way by watching financial news.

On the bottom of this page you will find a different style of financial news.

These are headlines you will not find elsewhere. This set of financial news is not necessarily correct – but it will help you balance what you receive from the mainstream sources.

You may want to bookmark this Speculation Rules journal just for that financial news -- and return to it often.

If you do watch the financial news pay attention as the excuses journey back and fourth. The market moves create the financial news – the financial news does not create the market moves.

If you would like a more in depth discussion of how public mood creates the market moves that create the financial news – watch the free documentary History's Hidden Engine.
