I am so excited to finally share this extensive list of free data and analytical tool resources for beginner investors. It has been requested for months now, and I have finally put it together. These resources are divided up into their respective categories, with a brief description as to what they are. Over and above this list I implore you not to forget the most important resource which is the financial statements of the stock that you're interested in. Nothing will ever even come close to the information you will receive in that. Additionally, as you read this you will find that there is so much free information at your disposal, you never have to pay anyone to "teach" you, or go to conferences and events to learn about the financial markets. The internet is an equalizer that gives you access to the same information any other investor has. I hope you enjoy this and share it.
