Your news ticker just a click away

On the Web

Your Money

January 18, 2004|By John M. Moran | John M. Moran,HARTFORD COURANT

Remember those old news tickers that continually spewed headlines onto a long strip of paper tape? Well, save a tree and get the electronic version instead.

The financial Web site of CBS MarketWatch has a real-time news ticker that's updated with breaking business headlines and news bulletins around-the-clock. The service, called NewsFinder, is online at marketwatch.com/news/newsfinder.

Before the opening bell on Wall Street and throughout the business day, commerce-oriented headlines arrive minute-by-minute. Nights and weekends, the updates are less frequent and tend more toward conventional breaking news.

The ticker is searchable based on stock ticker symbols. Certain types of news can be highlighted or filtered out. NewsFinder is free, and no registration is required, though you may have to put up with pop-up ads when you visit.

Electrons used to display the headlines are 100 percent recycled.
