As you invest, you need to stay aware of the market and the business world. Most financial newspapers are currently published online. Research stock quotes, scour commentary, and stay up to date on all the breaking news with a few easy clicks of your mouse.
Or, check out a financial blog for more market news and analysis. Although blogs are not affiliated with any institution, often the authors have worked at top firms or have significant experience in private investments.
- As with newspapers and regular magazines, there is some overlap among the different online publications. However, the benefit of the Internet is that you can easily read more than one or two. If you really want to acquire a thorough understanding, you'll read a variety of sources.

- Always read the “About” page so you can learn a little about the author of the blog you're reading. Answers to questions like, “What's her job?” and “How much experience does she have?” can supplement your understanding of her posts.
