Chris Adams (@ChrisAdamsmkts)
Chris is the Markets’ Editor for the Financial Times, the country’s premier financial periodical. The advice and insight he tweets are representative only of his personal views (meaning his account is not an arm of the Financial Times).

John Carney (@carney)
John Carney is the Senior editor and a blogger for CNBC, the country’s financial channel. John keeps his followers apprised not just of major happenings within the market but what those happenings mean for the “every man” whose portfolios will be affected by those happenings. His tweets are not limited to article plugs or blog plugs. He tweets personal insights and thoughts as well.
The St. Louis Federal Reserve (@stlouisfed)
Of all of the different regional Federal Reserve twitter accounts, this is one of the best. It publishes charts and articles and insight into a variety of things happening with the country’s currency and financial markets. Unlike personal financial advice accounts, the information here is strictly market-oriented. You won’t find insight or personal opinions here! You’ll find only data and facts!
Katie Martin (@katie_martin_fx)
Katie Martin is the Dow Jones’ editor for currencies and also contributes to the Wall Street Journal. She is hands down the best Forex expert on Twitter. Forex is all the rage right now, so if you want to learn more about it and what the different world currencies are doing (and what those actions mean for you), this is the twitter account to follow.
