*Some alternative trading and finance content for you to continue your professional development*
Happy Friday! Welcome back to the blog, in this blog post I am going to share with you 3 trading and finance blogs that I enjoy reading regularly and that I consider to provide valuable content. There is an abundance of trading and finance relate content available online now and this is a blessing as well as a curse because a lot of it is rubbish. This is my top 3 list.
Macrobond’s main source of business is their economic and financial data analysis platform which is very popular with hedge funds and institutions. On their website they also run a blog which posts regular content and charts showing key economic and financial data and they then explain what it might mean for traders and investors.
As I have said previously, I think it is important that all traders understand the macroeconomic principles of the markets and how fundamentals are influencing the price of assets and securities that you are trading/planning on trading. The Macrobond blog displays this information and explains it fantastically.

2. Forex Crunch
Forex Crunch is run by Yohay who has a degree in computer sciences and his approach to technically and fundamentally analysing the FX markets is very detailed. They post daily and weekly analysis and opinions on the FX markets and major currency pairs which I believe are very good. The Forex Crunch website also has lots of basic educational posts and tutorials although their strategies can be considered quite over complicated in my opinion.
However, the website itself is a great read and they constantly post updates on analysis and live news events that are moving the markets. The live FOREX calendar is handy and easy to use although it has less data than the DailyFx one that I normally use.

Money Stuff is an (almost) daily blog written by Matt Levine, a financial analyst and journalist who is incredibly knowledgeable about the inner workings of the financial markets. He has previous experience as an investment banker, M&A lawyer and even worked at the U.S. court of appeals. His blog covers all topics ranging from popular current affairs through to obscure and relatively unknown occurrences in the stock markets and has a regular emphasis on securities laws, the SEC and dodgy dealings.
