Let’s face it—you don’t always have time for long-winded essays on what’s going on in the world. That’s why we created the 5 Min. Forecast.

The 5 Min. Forecast cuts the fluff out of the news cycle and distills the day’s headlines into brief, digestible insights. You’ll get only the most important stories in politics, finance, technology and much more. Then our experts weigh in, providing succinct analysis you can’t find anywhere else… giving you insights you can use to profit from the news.

Our writers and editors are a globally connected and incredibly diverse hodge-podge of thinkers. They are private investors, world-travelers, accomplished analysts, former floor traders, leading scientists and inventors, hedge fund quants, policy wonks, best-selling financial authors, film makers, commodities experts… and more. They are all uniquely positioned to alert you to the news and trends you can use to develop a winning investment strategy.

Even better, the 5 Min. Forecast lets you join the conversation—we respond to reader comments and emails every day, so you can share your thoughts, skepticism, wit and wisdom. Go ahead and argue with us. We can take it.

Every 5 Min. Forecast is crafted and edited by Addison Wiggin and Dave Gonigam. Each morning, Addison reads off his top news stories and analysis while Dave grips the stopwatch. When the clock hits five minutes, they cut it off, clean it up, and send it to you. (We’ve even ginned up a few stop clock graphics to keep us in line and on time.)

Of course, every once in a while we’ll find a piece of news important enough to warrant an OVERTIME briefing, but we promise it will be worth every extra second.

After all… life is short.
