July 26, 2021, 2:54 p.m.

The quality of one’s financial and investment decisions is dependent on the quality of information one has. If you are ever going to make any financial decision, it has everything to do with the financial markets, whether you like it or not.

Take, for instance, if you buy fuel for your car, you will definitely look out for changes in fuel prices. The general increase in prices of goods and services is what is termed as inflation by economists. Inflation affects almost everything in an economy.

The inflation rate is an economic rate that plays a crucial role in financial markets. Another example is the treasury bill rate which is also called the risk-free rate. The treasury bill rate informs investors of the minimum returns they should earn on any investment if they have to do a comparative analysis.

It is possible you may have no idea what these rates are, which means you are almost unlikely to understand how they affect financial markets. Subsequently, it means you do not know how these rates and financial markets affect you.

In this article, we are going to simply show you where you can get financial markets data that covers economic rates (inflation, treasury bill rates, etc.), stocks, mutual funds, fixed income, forex, bonds, etc.
