Slow News and Quick News

There is value in reading on the latest. I confess to having been a bit addicted to checking on the US election recently. I have been a grateful consumer of articles with date and time stamps - I want the latest in such a context. 

But there is value is slower news. Analysis, usually written days and even months after events, does matter. That's because, unless you are a day-trader, most decisions can be made a a more leisurely pace. In such a timescale it is far more useful to get a decent analysis. Both kinds of news are important, but there is a thoughtful defence of the monthly newsletter containing analysis at this link. That also happens to be the kind of content financial advisers should probably focus on providing for their clients.
