Why it clicks: No one knows exactly where the stock market will go. But early birds can get a hint online if they know where to look: the "market data" homepage at the CNNMoney Web site. There you'll find pre-market views of stock index futures - a good guide to which way the wind is blowing on Wall Street, even before the opening bell.

The download: It doesn't stop at the market opening, either. All day long, the page gives you constantly updated (but 20 minutes delayed) quotes on the Dow, S&P 500 and Nasdaq indexes, as well as a variety of other market indices and financial barometers.

Look on the left-hand toolbar for links to "AM Market Call" and "PM Market Call" to more closely follow action before and after the regular trading day. Dozens of other links show you top market movers, most-active stocks, commodities, currencies and more.
