Many people whether they are in the financial industry or not like to stay current on their stock market news. The hardest part about staying current is finding a financial content provider that is not selling. What I mean by that is many of the advisors will recommend products or trades when they are talking about the market versus just talking about the market. To me this feels like they are trying to sell versus try to offer solid financial advice.
The stock market today is completely different that it was 10 years ago and people tend to watch it much more closely. This can be a good thing and a bad thing. If you are constantly watching financial investment news you are going to stress yourself out. There is only so much you can do to trade and make changes and trying to “day trade” today would be a high stress job. That is why i recommend that you stay current with the industry but you are best to let your investments sit.
