Four Ways to Get the Latest Financial News on Your Mobile

Running a business often means having one eye on the economy. Indeed, without knowing what the financial markets are doing, the rate of inflation and whether or not policies are changing, it’s almost impossible to stay ahead of the curve.

The good news is that keeping tabs on the latest events in finance is easy. As long as you’ve got a mobile device, there are plenty of apps and online resources that will keep you connected to the financial sector. With this in mind, here are four resources you can use to get the latest financial headlines:

1. CNBC Breaking News App

CNBC is one of the leading media networks for financial news and its app is designed to make breaking headlines even more accessible. What’s great about the app is that you can enable push notifications and create your own watchlist. This means the stories you’re most interested in get sent directly to your device, even when you’re not online.

2. Bloomberg TV

If you want to know what experts and analysts have to say about the latest financial events, Bloomberg TV is a great resource. You can stream this service on any smart device, and you get 30 minutes of free content per day.

After that you need to have a Bloomberg TV+ subscription. Packages start from £1.99 per month. The only downside to using Bloomberg TV on your mobile is that you need to use the optimised website because there isn’t a dedicated app.

3. TradingView

Staying on top of the latest financial news is as much about planning ahead as reacting. The online economic data calendar from TradingView is designed to give you a clear overview of upcoming financial events.

As well as a calendar, this app gives you real-time data from the financial markets. For example, if you want to know what the latest US Dollar Index is, the app can tell you. If you want live news linked to the US economy, it’s there. Basically, if it affects traders, the app covers it.

4. Humphrey Yang @HumphreyTalks

Another easy way to stay on top of current affairs and get the lowdown on financial matters is social media. There are, of course, thousands of accounts you could follow. Unfortunately, a lot of them are run by inexperienced people who don’t really know much about the financial world.

Therefore, if you’re going to use social media as a resource, make sure you assess the credentials of each person carefully. One résumé that does stand up to scrutiny is Humphrey Yang’s. He used to be a financial advisor before going full-time into social media. His social media channels provide news updates and guides to financial issues such as capital gains tax.

Vet Each App Before You Use It

These are just four of the resources you can use to get financial news and advice via your mobile. There are many more but, remember, there are unreliable resources out there. Make sure any app you download or site you visit is run by people who are well versed in the financial sector. As long as you do this, you shouldn’t have any problems staying ahead of the financial curve.
