The Financial Index is Daily Capital’s roundup of our Editor’s Picks for the day — featured trends and market analysis from around the Web.
Afraid to Trade: Even with the market seeming to recover from the recession, it is important to step back and look at it in different contexts. When looking at the monthly index charts, one can see that stocks have not yet broken recovery highs before May 2011.
Investors: Greece is making progress towards solving their debt issues and US job openings reached a 3-year high. These factors pushed all indexes up on Tuesday.
Mint: The Department of Labor passed new regulations requiring annual charge updates from 401(k) providers to their customers. Though it is unlikely that people will read the updates, it is a good step towards transparency in financial planning.
