It’s been a few years since I published the popular list of the Top 25 Traders on Twitter, so I figured it was time to update it with some new traders.
Twitter can be a great resource for trade ideas and market analysis.
Previously, when the market made a big move, I would go to CNN or Bloomberg to see what news was breaking. These days, I go straight to Twitter and usually find the answer within seconds.
Here is the list of the Top Traders on Twitter for 2014.
You can follow this list of traders by following the list I set up on Twitter.
