Overview

Economic indicators are the key to understanding the behaviour of financial markets. From bond investors, to equity investors to commodity traders, private equity, and hedge fund activities, their success is ultimately determined by how well the economy performs. The economy's ability to generate net value-added, or growth, from producing goods and services forms the lifeblood of financial market activity.

Key learning objectives:

  • Identify the indicators that impacts the economy

  • Comprehend GDP’s effect on corporates and markets

  • Understand the impact of monetary and fiscal policies on the economy
