It’s been a few years since I published the popular list of the Top 25 Traders on Twitter, so I figured it was time to update it with some new traders.

Twitter can be a great resource for trade ideas and market analysis.

Previously, when the market made a big move, I would go to CNN or Bloomberg to see what news was breaking. These days, I go straight to Twitter and usually find the answer within seconds.

Here is the list of the Top Traders on Twitter for 2014.
