Journal debuts new blogs, online markets data center
In addition to its newly designed print format, the newly redesigned Wall Street Journal has created a new online Markets Data Center.
The center, at www.wsj.com, launched on Jan. 2 and provides market information and easy ways for users to put data into context.
Features include quick scanning and charting capability of stocks and indexes; integrated access to market-moving headlines; and e-mail delivery of key market information, including the Journal's Money Rates.
A tour of the center is available at www.wsj.com/mdctour.
The new format of the print Journal provides top stock listings and new value-added statistics that graphically communicate information and analysis.
Each day for free, via the online Markets Data Center, Journal readers can screen more than 5,500 issues that trade on the New York Stock Exchange, NASDAQ and American Stock Exchange.
The Journal's Market Data Center will also provide free daily financial statistics along with interactive tools, functionality and charts.
The WSJ.com site debuted "The Wealth Report" blog on the same day as well, giving an inside look at the culture of wealth in America. It will continue to roll out a series of event-driven blogs over the course of the year.
Featured topics on the blog will include the Davos Economic Forum, the Detroit Auto Show and the Consumer Electronics Show.
"The Juggle," a blog about balancing work and family by Journal reporter Sara Schaefer Munyoz, started in December. It can be found at www.wsj.com/thejuggle.
All the blogs are available for free to subscribers and non-subscribers of The Wall Street Journal Online at WSJ.com.
