..a consolidated source. Tired of browsing piecemeal. Any subscriptions worth the price my sense is most are more of the same.

INFOnews.ca includes a consolidated, comprehensive wire news feed from The Canadian Press and The Associated Press all in one location.

Business - https://infotel.ca/news/business
U.S. and World - https://infotel.ca/world
Canada - https://infotel.ca/news/canada-news

You can also use Reuters' U.S. and Canadian websites (the U.S. one is nicer, but the Canadian one includes Canadian stories). Sadly, due to Thomson Reuters gutting the news division, they don't publish as many stories as they used to.

Finally, I would also add CBC News as your source of Canadian business news (https://www.cbc.ca/news/business). Use an ad blocker or, better yet, install the Vivaldi web browser with built-in ad and tracker blocking technology. I don't block ads on most sites, except CBC, principally because they receive more than a billion dollars in taxpayer funds every year and don't need the money—they should be mandated to be completely ad-free, or they should license all their content into the public domain so private news organizations can reuse their content for free. Or, better yet, the government should sell the CBC in an initial public offering to willing buyers, or spin it off publicly to Canadian citizens and permanent residents as at the record date, who can then decide to hold onto or sell their shares. I would support CBC Radio One, CBC Radio News Service, and Radio ICI (French language CBC Radio One, basically) remaining in public hands, but I don't think it makes sense to have the rest publicly owned.

If you want an all-encompassing news site, just use Google News (https://news.google.ca/). I don't like the mobile friendly new design, but it is pretty good. If you stick to those four sources, you've pretty much got everything. No need to pay for a Globe & Mail subscription to read self-appointed personal finance pundits like Rob Carrick who entirely rehash what more credible journalists write or which those on this forum already know.

Cheers,
Doug

I would Never consider getting my news from just one source. Far to many people do that ... especially the Knuckleheads, down in the States ❗

To get news from different sources and perspectives, I prefer to browse ... but just not 'piecemeal'.

I follow these on a daily basis :

And I'm thinking of adding a European source to that list ... any suggestions ❓

I have been using Netvibes for years. Its what they call a personal dashboard, like a lead page or home page which has whatever you choose (that is available to be added) to be on it. It does take some getting used to, however that can be enjoyable. It sounds like what you are looking for, and is free.

https://www.netvibes.com/en

For example I have CTV News, CBC News, Google News, BBC, CNN, Fox, FP and Reuters Video for business news, among others. I also individually visit the Bloomberg/BNN Bloomberg sites and others. Occasionally clicking on the links doesn't work, in which case I go to the original sites I have bookmarked.

I haven't subscribed, but I doubt it. I just go there for the few headlines and stock futures in the morning. I find myself just using my discount brokerage news feed for most Canadian business news, and then various others mentioned above. Also if I'm expecting specific announcements, then I'll go to New Release sites like Cision and search, or set up e-mail advices from seekingalpha.com

Here are some suggestions for free story related. I use many feeds which are aggregated through an RSS reader. For the companies I am interested in it pulls the stories to a reading queue.

Not sure what you define as junk but in the Canadian market there are thousands of companies small and large. One man's junk is another man's treasure.

I suggest you interview a few people whom one might consider hiring as financial advisors or planners, and ask them what they read on a daily basis.

I asked one of them this once. He was working at RBC and handled "high net worth" clients who pay him an annual fee. I remember that he included the Financial Times (London), Globe and Mail, and Wall Street Journal. This was perhaps 5 to 8 years ago. I imagine he (and others in similar positions) have access to all the information they might want through their employers even if paywalled, but, then, they generate quite a bit of it internally.

But I don't really understand why you would want to put so much attention on the news of the minute. It's typically behind the actual underlying trends, and superficial. Do you intend to make significant financial decisions based on this? Just wondering.

Out of curiosity, I asked Google "what does Warren Buffett read?" and got the following answer:
"He reads six newspapers a day, including The Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, The New York Times, USA Today, Omaha World-Herald, and American Banker. Whether or not you have time for such an ambitious goal is largely irrelevant. The point of the Buffett formula is to make whatever progress you can. Feb 10, 2020 "

Other interviews said he spends 80% of his working time reading and thinking. He considers 500 pages a day to be a good pace. Munger has the same attitude.

Something to think about.

bloomberg $1.99/mth 3mth intro offer. Before paywall i recall it was average not great

How is Globeinvestor same as before paywall lame?

Reuters? Whats my best pay option

How is the 10k+ annually bloomberg terminal has anyone used.

Information should be more widely available to the public ive always felt the bloomberg terminals of the world give an unfair advantage to insiders.

I'd be happy to pay a couple hundred bucks a month for a quality feed, some analytics and more extensive pricing.

Why doesnt reuters owned Globe do a better job.

Maybe there would less corportate welfare if retail investors were given proper access to info. As it stands they run to government for bailouts rather than individuals. They DELIBERATELY keep investors uniformed.

Im always amazed full service brokers dont have good access to information they have same stuff as u n me can u believe and their firms offerings. They dont have full terminals in the office so far example if u want a bond they will only quote u what their firm has in inventory. If u want more they have to call the bond desk an inconvenience and ur still not going to be given the full breadth
