Global Macro Indicators

Economic indicators are key statistics that are used by investors and analysts to interpret current or future investment possibilities or to judge the overall health of an economy.

Economic indicators provide insights into the future, present and the past of an economy in the sense that leading indicators move ahead of the economic cycle, coincident indicators move with the economy, and lagging indicators fall behind the economic cycle.

Indicators fall into these three categories: leading indicators for example new orders for capital goods by manufacturers, coincident indicators such as The gross domestic product and lagging indicators like the Consumer Price Index.

The vast majority of economic indicators have a defined release schedule, providing investors the ability to build assumptions and trading strategies based on the results of the reading and their divergence from expectations.
