Start each morning off with fresh and USEFUL information by tuning into Market Open Live!
In addition to John and Ed's on air commentary, listeners are invited to call in to ask questions about specific stocks or the market in general. While calls can come from across the country, "Market Open Live " has a solid following in the DC metropolitan area, helping to give the show some local flare.
No matter where I was, I would always try to listen in to this show. You might say I was "addicted." When we were on vacation I would plan my activities around the show. When my wife decided to search for beachfront Maui rentals for an upcoming 25th wedding anniversary celebration trip, she had me figure out the time difference for catching the show while we were on this tropical Hawaiian island. When she realized it would be 3:30 AM Maui time when the show would be live versus 8:30 AM when we were in New York City, she told me that I better figure out a way to tape the show or watch a rerun later in the day. I had to agree with that assessment. There was so many activities we wanted to do during our two week stay- golfing, snorkeling, hiking, a trip to Hana, a trip to the Haleakala Crater, ocean kayaking, fishing...well you get the point. However, since I could download the podcasts there shouldn't be an issue of my missing a show. And then it became mote since the site was stopping their The Last Market show until January 2011. Our trip was for the last two weeks in December so I wouldn't be missing anything!
