  3. Try the Commitment of Traders Report. It's by no means the grail, but does give a view of what big money is doing. It takes awhile to understand. I am still learning it.

    Careful on that value investing. Wasn't Monish Pabrai a considered a genius until recently.

  5. forget about it. its not worthwhile. trying to trade on fundamentals is a detriment. look at all of the great value guys funds. many are getting killed.
    the simple truth is that many or most companies do their books in a way to keep people from figuring out what thay are doing.

    I'm primarily a trader, so not the best for advice on value investing, but maybe take a look at Joel Greenblatt's book "The little book that Beats the Market". He has a very interesting take on fundamentals an how to analyse them as a value investor.
     
  7. For commodities I'd recomend cbot.com,agdayta.com,futuresource.com,barchart.com and one cmegroup.com you can watch an order book. Not very fundamental but it gives you a good idea of what is going on.
