    Did any one else spot the small article on NI in Smart Money (Page 40)? They inaccurately described the fee structure. I hope someone from NI gets them to print a correction.

    Smart Money

    The Navrainvest Funds occasionally get a mention (the US fund, high exposure to resources, performance etc.) from time to time, but seem misunderstood.

    Morningstar also seem confused as to the detail.

    Makes you wonder at the rest of the reporting!

    Ah yes the quality of what we read.

    We live in a soundbite society and thats the kind of poorly researched junk we are fed a majority of the time.

    It's like a bresh of fresh air when you discover well researched and considered content, I'm finding some of this in the blogosphere in recent months, precious little in traditional print, TV or online media though.

    It takes some time to actually develop enough knowledge to be able to filter the garbage from the gems as well, good luck to the retail investor basing their judgement on such information.

    Get yourself a good feed aggregator and start digging.

    Blogs link to other ones, after a while you find a lot of good ones, I have just pruned mine down to about 40 core ones for the fin markets (too much reading) which I check daily.

    It's a real echo chamber though, many blogs end up linking to the same material, repeating comments which like a real echo chamber amplifies those blogs that reach critical mass. Which means that true talent is sometimes disguised by 'A list' bloggers with many readers gaining credibility because they got there first, like I said it does take some digging.

    It's kind of a personal thing.

    I track blogs from billionaires down to the lunch money traders (any account sub 6 figures in my book), though sometimes it's difficult to tell the difference online.

    A few of my favourites:

    Random Roger, The Kirk Report, Bill Cara, Trader Feed, The Big Picture, Dismally, Savage Chickens (hey it's very funny)
