ECONOMIC INDICATORS





Ivan Khandoshkin (Sonata)

 

Getting an overall picture of economic conditions is one of the first steps to stock picking. Judiciously using these macroeconomic indicators can help us to that end. Once we do this we can begin to focus on individual sectors and their respective industries as to their efficacy. In some cases you can profit by timing your trades with the release dates.  It’s wise to notice trends and year over year changes of these statistics. Over time you will come to differentiate these reports and utilize certain ones that work with your trading.

My List of important Economic Indicators:

1) Help wanted Index

2) Unemployment rate U3 and U6.

3) Single family home sales.

4) ISM Manufacturing index

5) Motor vehicle production index

6) Mining and Oil and gas production index

7) Capacity Utilization

8) Capital spending as a percentage of GDP.

9) 10 Year Treasury

10) Federal Funds rate

  1. Use a space marine cadet to size up the doors on your foam board
    they should fit through the doors. In this manner, you get to choose what you think
    is best for you. Websites like Online Casino Planet
    are trying to make the hunt for good casinos easy for
    customers by posting rankings and lists of the best ones.

  2. Do you mind if I quote a couple of your posts as long as I
    provide credit and sources back to your website? My blog site is
    in the exact same area of interest as yours and my users would definitely benefit from some of the information you provide here.
    Please let me know if this alright with you. Cheers!

  3. Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text
    in your content seem to be running off the screen in Opera.
    I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do
    with browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know.
    The style and design look great though! Hope you get the
    problem fixed soon. Many thanks

  4. You can definitely see your skills in the article you write.
    The world hopes for even more passionate writers such as you
    who aren’t afraid to say how they believe. All the time follow your heart.

  5. Can I simply say what a relief to discover a
    person that actually knows what they are discussing on the web.

    You certainly understand how to bring a problem to light and make it important.

    More and more people need to read this and understand this side of the story.

    It’s surprising you are not more popular given that you surely have the gift.

  6. An impressive share! I have just forwarded this onto a friend who had been doing a little homework on this.
    And he in fact bought me lunch due to the fact that I discovered it for him…

    lol. So let me reword this…. Thanks for the meal!!
    But yeah, thanks for spending some time to talk about this matter here on your web site.
