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. I’ve been browsing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting
    article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me.

    In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as
    you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.

  2. After looking at a number of the blog posts on your web page, I honestly
    like your technique of writing a blog. I book marked it to my bookmark site list and will be checking back soon. Take a look at my website too and tell me how you feel.

  3. The slime ball who just left is your ex-husband, you say’.
    We made it to land, bought sunglasses and some trinkets, drank ten “Lead-in-the-Pencil” Pina
    Coladas and don’t remember the return trip. First, you have
    to know that even guys who seem to have everything such as looks, experience and confidence
    get dumped after a first date.

  4. My developer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type
    on various websites for about a year and
    am anxious about switching to another platform. I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
