Quick Tips On Selecting The Best Stock Trading Newsletter

Jun 6, 2008
Today, many online newsletters for stock trading tips are available, whether for playing the stock market online, or the old fashioned way. Some of these are free, some are not. Why should you subscribe to a pay-to-access online newsletter, when so many of them are available for free? Well, for one thing - it just might be worth it.

With stock trading newsletter the following statement is often true, "You Will Get What You Pay For". Stock trading newsletters that are paid for may offer more benefits than those that are free. For example, free newsletters may often contain a ton of advertisements that make it difficult for your computer to download. The advertising also can be annoying and distracting. Paid newsletters may have few ads.

Secondly, you should consider the potential effects of advertising on the content of the newsletter. Free online newsletters have no obligation to journalistic integrity, and may "push" the stock of their advertising clients, even if better options are available. If you notice that the service you're using blurs the line between paid advertising and free advice, consider what it's costing you in terms of the potential profits that you may be missing through missed opportunity - opportunity that could have been yours for a low subscription fee.

Also, stock market brokers generally use the paid online stock trading newsletters as opposed to the free ones. The information that they glean from the fee based newsletter is usually of better quality and caters to the needs of the professional. It is not inconsistent in it's delivery and content like some of the free newsletters.

Keep your options open until you find the service - or services - that work the best for you and your type of trading. Remember that you can pick and choose, and use several newsletters. You're not limited to just one. Even if you do subscribe to a particular pay-to-access online newsletter, if it doesn't give you what you need, you can always cancel and try another.

Nothing obligates you to stay with something that isn't working for you. If one newsletter provides advice better suited to your type of trading than the one you're using, switch. It's just good business - and isn't that the whole point? Also, keep in mind that certain software packages for online trading provide trading advice at no extra cost. If the web trading software client you use is helpful to you, then it may make sense to go with their forecasting service as well.

An online stock trading newsletter will of no help or value to you if it does not cover the kind of trading you engage in. If you are a conservative trader, looking for a diversified package of investments, then a newsletter focusing on penny stocks will be of no use to you. And, of course, if penny stocks is your thing than don't spend money on an online stock trading newsletter that is centered on NASDAQ because penny stocks aren't part of the NASDAQ market.
