An excellent blog that I have read for months now is Brett Steenbarger's Traderfeed. At first glance the blog may appear to concentrate on the trading style of investing with a focus on a short time frame. But a close reading of the blog over several weeks disabuses one of that thought. Why? Because what Mr. Steenbarger discusses on his blog has universal application to all market participants. One must simply filter out the short term discussions to reach the deeper meaning of the material presented.
It simply does not matter where one is on the investing spectrum, the content available at Traderfeed assists all market participants. How can one blog do this? By discussing and focusing on the only element common in all forms of investing: human psychology. Across all time frames and applicable to all styles it is You which must be harnessed for market success. Exploring and understanding your competencies and limitations reigns paramount above all else. That is what the Traderfeed is all about.
That is why, in my opinion, Traderfeed is one of the most important blogs a new investor or trader reads.
