Finance Trends on Financial Blog Watch

I'm pleased to note that Finance Trends Matter was recently highlighted on WallSt.net's radio program, "Financial Blog Watch".

I was interviewed by the show's host, Dennis Olson, and the conversation centered around the issues we cover here at Finance Trends, highlighting important trends in the markets and the economy, and listing some other worthwhile blogs and internet sites that I like to check out.

Anyone who would like to hear the program interview can do so by clicking on the Financial Blog Watch site and listening to the podcast in the site's own media player, or by clicking on the "Download" option for Episode 17 and opening the MP3 clip in your own media player.

If you only have a few minutes to spare today, please do take the opportunity to check out some of the blogs featured in our sidebar's blogroll. As I mentioned in the interview, there are a number of very worthwhile finance and investment blogs on the web, and I've tried to compile a few of those sites in our blogs and links sections.

While I was able to name a few of those sites in the broadcast, there were many more that I wish I could have highlighted specifically. Some of these blogs have directly influenced my writing here and the topics I chose to discuss in the "Blog Watch" interview. I'm sure you'll get as much out of these sites as I have, so take a look!

Also be sure to check out some of the other interesting interviews found on the Financial Blog Watch program. There are some great blogs and bloggers featured here, and you might find a few new sites worth checking out. Enjoy, and we'll see you tomorrow.

"During his lifetime, Livermore gained and lost several multi-million dollar fortunes. Most notably, he was worth $3 million and $100 million after the 1907 and 1929 market crashes, respectively. He subsequently lost both fortunes. Apart from his success as a securities speculator, Livermore left traders a working philosophy for trading securities that emphasizes increasing the size of one's position as it goes in the right direction and cutting losses quickly.
