MarketWatch Prepares Revamp

Its first update since 2009.

Screen Shot 2016-02-29 at 9.57.26 AMMarketWatch is about to revamp its look for the first time in seven years. The new MarketWatch features clearer organization, less clutter and an updated markets dashboard.

In a post by editor Jeremy Olshan, the new look starts with the site’s homepage.

“We didn’t take this redesign lightly,” wrote Olshan. “While, for many news sites, the home page has become an obsolete showpiece with steadily declining traffic, MarketWatch has bucked the trend. The page is more popular than ever.”

The redesigned MarketWatch will debut as soon as this week.
