Blog O'NoteTwo blogs actually. "Calculated Risk"and "Big Picture."
First Calculated Risk, written by "a senior executive, retired from a public company, with a background in investing, finance and economics.. CR provided ubergeeky insider info on lending and charting the general economy."
Second, Barry Ritholtz at Big Picture. Barry is just one of those people that operate on a higher plane. Despite being smarter than three of us he finds the time to blog on current markets, for free. When you get serious he's got a paid site with advice that I've never heard anyone ever complain wasn't worth ten times what he charges. "Trenchant economic commentary"
- Floyd Norris, NY Times
On a down 200 point day both sites are replete with the absolute quiet certitude of people who know something others are still missing. Both places have authors and posters who know their stuff.
