A toy shark holding U.S. dollar bills, Diane Macdonald, PhotographerWelcome to moneyNOW, MSN Money's new destination for smart, original and entertaining takes on the latest business and investing topics that are buzzing on the web.


Wondering how much money rapper Psy is making from his record-setting YouTube video, Gangnam style? Find out at moneyNOW. Did you know that gun sales soared during Black Friday this year? Or that Japan Airlines is now offering KFC on flights? Those are the kind of conversation starters you'll learn about on moneyNOW.


But that’s not all. On moneyNOW, investors learn what companies their peers are searching for more information about and get to the bottom of controversies, like why Wall Street hates Groupon’s CEO. Instead of straight earnings news, you’ll find out why Tiffany may regain its lost luster. Instead of reading about Congressional budgets, moneyNOW goes right to the key question: Is the mortgage deduction at risk?


To stay abreast of the latest money trends, writers and editors review results from MSN’s proprietary Demand Dashboard, which sifts data from real-time sources like Twitter, Bing and StockTwits. These results are also filtered every few minutes and displayed in MSN Money's Trending now module, which you can find on MSN Money and moneyNOW. The Trending Now box displays financial keywords and stock tickers that are hot on search and social media. The results are determined by a computer algorithm, displayed automatically and not filtered.


The goal of moneyNOW is to inform and engage our readers. Visit today and come back often.

It would be nice if people used this site for investment discussions instead of a place

Well said Barry.  KFC on Japan airlines??  Who cares.  Here is a good example.  Intermediate bonds fund returns have been steadily going down.  So where is someone to put that money or do we just leave it alone and ride out the loss of income?  That would be more useful than finding out what a rapper is getting paid.

Once upon a time, Barry... Money Talk was a great place to discuss non-organized financial play. It wasn't destroyed by political whatever, it was destroyed by organized licensed financiers being in a blog without identifying themselves or their positions. Notice that all of the article writers here do. When you see my chant: close the banks, end the Fed, get rid of Wall Street... know why it exists. If you are interested in investing in the exchanges, you need to be doing your own investing. Guess what? If you don't want or can't stomach loss, don't invest. I own very few stocks or bonds because the platforms behind them are false. That said, my returns exceed the markets by a long shot and are just as viable... perhaps more so. It would be great to discuss it but deadbeats with super computers and no ethics or character are too prevalent. We all want the same thing... for the grubber, the paid poster and the evangelical anarchist to hit the road and crawl back under the rock from whence they came.
