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
