I've been reading that Seeking Alpha newsletter since you recommended it. At first, I had no idea what the hell was going on, but now I'm figuring it out. The more I read, the more I get it. I’m totally dedicated even if I’m like, ‘what?’ half the time. - PDX Sheconomama

PDX Sheconomama, good on you girl. GOOD ON YOU. The jargon of financial news can be discombobulating. I liken it to when I started watching West Wingmidway through the second season. I had no idea what was going on, but my brain wanted more of it, so it kept going back until things started to make sense. Then I was like, “Haaayyyy.”

For those of you looking to sharpen your money news game, I recommend Seeking Alpha Wall Street Breakfast as your daily digest of the money haps. I also like StockRover's Weekly Market Debrief for a bird's eye view of the economy as well as The Week's Daily Business Briefing. Being in the know about the global economy is a good thing; it does, after all, impact our personal economic security.
