(You headline is misleading if you omit the basketball part. Your lead is concise and interesting though. Learning on the job is what you should emphazise when you describe the job of a financial reporter. Your article is well organized and structured but you should watch out for some obvious grammatical mistakes, like we ususally use the term "circulation" instead of "sales" in describing newspaper industry. )

"Being a financial reporter is easier than playing basketball", says Tim Chan, Hong Kong Economic Journal Executive Chief Editor, at Hong Kong Shue Yan University today.


Being financial reporters need expertise knowledge on economics and finance, and most Journalism major students are lack of that. Some worry entering the financial reporting industry can be very difficult. But Chan assured that being a financial reporter can be “easier than playing basketball”.


Chan further explains that if the journalists are hard-working, they can learn about the jargons and the market when they get in the industry, especially when the market changes constantly now, both senior and junior reporters maybe facing the changes at the same level.


Market for paid newspapers

The Economic Journal has increased its price since early September and some says sales will be lowered. But Chan said newspaper have inelastic demand as the price is low and people tend to have habitual buying. The lower in sales of newspaper is lower than the increase in price. So the EJ is still having positive revenue. With the gaining popularity of smartphones, many newspapers are going online and EJ is doing the same.


Chan added that there is a market for instant analysis of the financial market and people are willing to pay for that. Many analysis tools in foreign countries are charging high fees and there are subscriptions.
