Investopedia, an online financial content provider, reported this month that some 22 million monthly readers peruse the more than 30,000 articles on its site.
So, what are these visitors interested in?
Each year, Investopedia’s data science team looks at historical data to identify which topics had the biggest influx of visitors over the past 12 months.
Their analysis showed that this year, searches for everything from data breaches to economic theories to presidential debates to, yes, celebrities influenced the top terms.
Investopedia said this year’s most-read terms reflected the tension in global and domestic economies as investors contended with the sustainability of a bull market for stocks.
And as income inequality continued to spread across the globe, people questioned their notions about many things, such as homeownership, retirement and the role of capitalism.
Look at the gallery for this year’s top financial terms, according to Investopedia.
