Stock market news today

I struggle to locate good and relevant news relating to the stock markets, because being informed and aware of what is happening in the broader economy and specific sectors be it small caps or large caps is very important.

Over the years I have developed a base of sites which I use for getting a feel of the market and being updated on the latest news affecting stocks daily.

Cnbc should be your first stop to catch up on the latest news and what's happening in the world of business and the economy.

Stocktwits is the equivalent of bring stocks and twitter together. Yes you are correct, its where people tweet about stocks, currencies, commodities. Easiest place to pick up news on whatever it is one might be searching for.;

Again two specialized sites for information and news relating not just to stock but the economy and business world in general.

A Wall street journal site dedicated to latest stock market news.
