Wall Street Journal Pro Edition (WSJ + Factiva) Now Available for Consumers ($49/month)
Today, Dow Jones made available to consumers the WSJ Professional Edition (currently available at a 4 week free trial).
This includes news coverage and analysis from the WSJ, more than 17,000 global business and news sources from Dow Jones Factiva and other newswires aggregated. Additionally, it allows for a semblance of faceted search, built-in search aids, and alerting. It includes archives from up to 12 months.
