Having great statistics is a vital part of what I do, and I’m sure that it’s important to all sorts of investors. I need them to help understand the market, creating Joint Venture presentations, blog posts and other presentations I do.
One of my favorite sites is StatsCan (Statistics Canada). I’ve used the stats from The Daily in the past, like this post about unemployment numbers. What I (finally) did the other day was add The Daily to my RSS reader. Now it’s easier than ever, and much more digestable.
You can get the RSS stream here: http://www.statcan.gc.ca/dai-quo/rss-eng.htm
Each day has 3-6 different reports, like today’s which looked like this:
Tuesday, May 12, 2009
Released at 8:30 a.m. Eastern time
Canadian international merchandise trade, March 2009
Canada’s merchandise imports and exports both declined in March, largely due to volume reductions. Imports decreased more than twice as fast as exports.
