Money News Made Easy
If you want to keep up on the latest in the world of finance, there are many more options than going out each day and vigorously scouting the information and news yourself.
The major search engines each offer their own finance pages, complete with business and personal finance news, advice and contacts. You can also set up RSS feeds that deliver keyword-specific finance news straight to your email address or feed-reading device each day.
Lets take a look at what one of the major search engines offers on its finance home page. What’s great about these searchengine options is that, because they also offer a free profile and email service, you can set up your own personalized finance page and customize it so that the information delivered to your system each day is exactly what you want to see most.
The four major tabs on the top of this finance home page are Investing, News and Opinion, Personal Finance and My Portfolios. The home page we first land one is the Weekend Edition of the sites finance section, and it includes articles about new markets for luxury homes, the best places to retire, special travel perks available to road warriors, major art auctions and galleries and the personal wealth they can bring, and a feature story about a prime and historic piece of Hollywood property that is up for sale.
Each day this finance page will also show you the latest stock prices and the trends of the major markets. Personal finance news includes columns by experts that address subjects such as the ten highest-priced U.S. housing markets, the ten best stocks to buy, and tips on taxes, bill paying and retirement planning.
When you head to the investing tab from this finance home page you can delve more deeply into the various savings resources, such as stocks, bonds, utilities, commodities, real estate, and so forth, and the best ways to save for things like college education including the industries most likely to stand the financial test of time.
From the pull down menus of the News and Opinion finance tab you can explore in more depth issues and topics such as small business help, investment ideas, and providers such as angel firms and venture capitalists.
The personal finance tab is full of advice on career and workplace issues, banking and investing options, family and home life issues such as work/ life balance and trailing spouse problems, the various training and education resources and costs, buying and making money in real estate and so forth.
When you head from the finance home page to the last tab, my portfolio, you get the opportunity to make this handy search engine feature your very own. You can indicate which stocks you’d like to be daily displayed from your finance home page, which finance blogs you’d like to read each day or week, and which keyword searches you’d like the finance algorithms of the search engine to seek out for you. You can search on your own, download the spreadsheet of todays stock info or link to your favorite financial news items.
