Some Free (inexpensive) help

March 25th, 2006 at 01:44 am

This week's action (March 20-24):

This week, the NYSE closed down about 43 points. Although it looks to be starting a move down, I cannot yet claim victory for my predictions made in my 3/10 and 3/16 postings.

My favorite publications:

Investor's business Daily:

The Big Picture and the IBD 100 are must reads. I usually just get the Monday special. $2 a read. Other days are $1 each. Get it a Barnes and Noble and most newsstands. Otherwise, subscriptions are available, but expensive. They have very good online tools that come with some of the subscription offers, though.

Business week:

Analysis of the economy and figures of the week are very useful. About $38.00 for a year's subsription.

Value Line Investment Survey:

An excellent resource for individual stock investing. They rate stocks 1-5 on various criteria. It costs about $375.00 a year for a subscription. I go to the library instead and use it for free. It is important to buy the stocks when they have just been upgraded to #1 for timeliness and sell when downgraded.

CNBC.com:

(free) Down load the advanced chart tool. It is extremely useful for evaluating volume and price movements of any index or stock.

CNN.com:

(free) The charting tool is less sophisticated than CNBC's but is easier to use and will basically give you the same info, except if does not do customized periods.

    You can try a 2 week trial of IBD (print and online version) for free. Check it out.

    Don't forget to use web portals like Yahoo! Finance and MSN Money. You'll save time and money.
