If you have have open positions in the financial markets you always need to be aware of news and events going on around the world.
 
Social networks play a fundamental role to be instantly informed of the events that occur when the market are closed. Twitter is a key instrument to use to be in touch with the news because often people learn of breaking news on Twitter before they read about it on CNN.
 
On the other hand, applications such as Bloomberg or Google Finance are key to knowing how the major American indexes, such as the Dow, S&P 500 and the Nasdaq are trading, as well as the opening of Tokyo at night before going to bed or early in the morning in Europe. It also helps to see how the major currencies and forex are trading after the closing bell. 
 
Money never sleeps, neither should we, the traders!
