At this point in my life, I am turning off CNBC forever along with all other news programs. Watching CNBC all these years has not been helpful...at all. In fact, I think its been harmful from a psychological perspective. There are lots of sophisticated FREE stock/news screeners out there like finviz.com so there is absolutely no need to watch CNBC. Oftentimes, CNBC gives you news late anyways...and I mean by several hours. If you absolutely need some type of news going in the background, then turn Bloomberg TV on. Those guys still will not give you any type of edge, but they are a lot better then CNBC. Their world of financial journalism seems more responsible. However, for me, I am turning the television completely off and if it does stay on then it won't be on a financial news station. That stuff just throws you off and places your focus where it shouldn't. It might be better to even have your favorite music going on in the background then hearing Bob Pisani going off every 10 or so minutes. Just say no. Turn the television off and focus on the work at hand.
