FWIW most people on this forum who does investing based on asset-allocation and indexing don't follow financial news because the financial news add no value to your investment decisions.

+1. For knowledge, there's the bogleheads forum and this forum. For market timing, stock picking propaganda, just turn on the boob tube to any of the so called financial channels. For bullsh!t and lies, any of the big FA web sites will gladly blow smoke up your ass and call it advice.

These are not really daily readers. But, they provide a good base of information on index investing and early retirement.

I like these on a selective basis:

Bloomberg Europe - particularly the "markets" articles
https://www.bloomberg.com/markets

Morningstar - occasional useful fund articles
Morningstar – Independent Investment Research

CNBC - be very selective on this one. Note on different devices you get different experiences. Best on PC.
https://www.cnbc.com/world/?region=world

also this blog by Carlson: http://awealthofcommonsense.com/

As some have indicated, many on this forum establish an appropriate asset allocation (depends on the individual) and then they invest in low cost index funds. Other than possible rebalancing of the funds periodically, they take no other investment action. Accordingly, daily financial updates are considered to be a distraction at a minimum and at worst a detriment to sound investing.

The Boblehead's reading list includes a long list of books that review these topics and why this is a sound way to invest. One of my favorite investing books is, The Four Pillars of Investing, by William Bernstein.

I enjoy looking at the sector maps on FinViz to see which sectors are moving - https://finviz.com/map.ashx

and I also look over the primary page and my portfolio news on SeekingAlpha https://seekingalpha.com/

And finally I look at M*Star
Morningstar – Independent Investment Research

I don't have much use for the major media financial news

morningstar, I like Christina's articles. I like the market outlook vids they do.

google finance, to follow, (and mostly ignore) news related to my holdings and possible future holdings. I have a watch-list but this will all supposedly go away. I don't invest based on news output.

Percentage calculator - cuz I dont like doing long-hand math

FIRECalc, and other calculator sites although use with a grain of salt, especially tax planning calculators.

Vanguard.com - Seriously, a lot of good articles and info

If your indexer you can go to bogleheads.org. Not much to discuss about it really. In general they are religiously dogmatic and will shut down any discussion that deviates from their belief system.

If you want to have fun and be able to discuss any idea, even hair brained ideas, without the thought police jumping in then I suggest seekingalpha.com.

Wow, tough crowd! Like the OP, I like to at least check things out and see what's going on in the financial world. I invest in index funds and stick to it, but it is nice to get an idea on what's happening in a broader sense.

I think that many on the ER site feel like you do. Over the years it is good to get some financial sense of what drove historical changes in stocks/bonds.

Does not mean you can predict anything going forward. But sometimes markets go extreme. Maybe Bitcoin is a current example but with markets there are always two sides to the trade.

It is a tough crowd was basically saying " what do you all read about while having your Cup of coffee in the Morning" I posted it while I was having mine.
Yes I read almost strictly financial sites,anything major happens they get a hold of it and report it,and Yes I have a decent sized portfolio that follows asset allocation, but I also have a little gambling money set aside,just in case.( I don't care for Vegas!)

I like financial TV shows where the host yells a lot and waves his arms. Really helps me zero in on my financial strategy.

I like reading the articles from Michael Kitces on retirement planning and investing. The other websites are Darrow Kirkpatrick's site -- Can I Retire Yet and the forum at Bogleheads.org

Generally speaking the only time I buy or sell is just once a year for rebalancing. I rebalance just to get back to where I am supposed to be according to my written financial plan (which details my AA, which funds, and percentages of each).
