The best of this week’s The Ticker

It’s been a big week for business news and a big week for The Ticker. For the first time ever, The Ticker topped Business Spectator’s most read list. We also sparked a debate about metadata disclosures on Twitter.

This being said, the true goal of The Ticker is to get you (the readers) involved. As I mentioned in the first post, with this blog we're hoping to highlight your expertise. The easiest way to participate is to shoot me suggestions for the ‘interesting reads’ section we run every morning. We’ll also hat-tip on the blog for the tip-off.

Speaking of tip-offs, if you are looking for live markets coverage you should check out The Australian’s BusinessNow section. It provides a rolling coverage of markets news and analyst notes among other things.

But for now, here are this week’s top stories. Have a great weekend.
