I would like to jump into the financial markets as a trader but admit that i know very little about the financial markets. Anyone know which publications I can read on a daily or weekly basis for the next year or so to get me up to speed on how markets move and what tends to move them? I have heard that "The Economist" is a good magazine to start out with. Any other ideas?
Barrons would be my pick for a perceptive, market-savvy publication. (Of course, I'm not saying they are right all the time.)
