Economic Indicators are anything but "just numbers" - they are the keys to unlocking invaluable information about market behaviour. Covering all the major indicators reported by private and government statistical agencies - including the pricing index, employment figures, retail sales, housing - this comprehensive resource provides full descriptions of indicators and what they represent, their impact on the direction of interest rates, exchange rates, and the stock market, and how and why the market reacts as it does. The book also offers brief guidelines for gearing your investment strategies to these ever-changing economic statistics. Written in a clear non-technical terms and clearly organized by sectors of the economy, this accessible guide:

takes a closer look at GDP, with an overview of the macro-economic framework using the standard national income computing methodology

compares and contrasts consumer sector indicators to distinguish which series are more reliable and consistent

differentiates between all measures of inflation, and makes the key distinction between inflation in the goods market and inflation in the services market

explores foreign market indicators, including the monthly and quarterly indicators for the foreign exchange, domestic bond and equity markets

features revealing "did you know?" titbits and cautionary tales, as well as special factors unique to specific indicators.
