These are all resources I use or have used in the past. They’ve all played a role along the way in my trading successes. If you know of more useful resources please share them!
Note: These are all free as of the writing of this post.
FinViz – A great place to create watch lists and sort through different stocks.
EconTalk – This is a weekly Economics podcast with host Russ Roberts. Russ does a great job of asking the right questions to prompt a high quality informative dialogue with interesting perspectives.
Academic Earth – For those interested in learning about aspects like the brain and human behavioral psychology, Academic Earth allows you to watch recordings of classroom lectures from top notch universities such as Stanford, Harvard, and Yale.
iTunesU – Similar to Academic Earth, the iTunesU library offers university level material archived for easy viewing right from your computer.
Think and Grow Rich – Now in public domain, this classic book is available via PDF, although I still prefer the audio version.
Jing – A quick and easy way to take screenshots of trades and short videos. Makes for a great addition to your trading journal.
StockTickr (Free for 7 days) – This is a fantastic trading journal. This one does cost a monthly fee, but they do offer a free trial period so I thought I’d add it to the list. Well worth it if you ask me. It’s helped me make a lot of great discoveries about my trading.
Strava – For the athletes out there I use Strava to track my rides. You can also use it to track runs and see what teammates or friends are doing. It’s pretty cool.
Pandora – Free Music! Pandora is a great tool to pass the time throughout the day listing to new tracks and discovering new artists.
Market Psychology Tests – A variety of tests designed for traders and those interested in becoming traders. They have many different uses, some better than others.
