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. Everything is very open with a clear description of the issues.
    It was really informative. Your website is extremely helpful.
    Thank you for sharing!

  2. Determining the importance between the weight you’re carrying or the area you’ll fill is vital.
    What you’re hauling and the business chassis you select will help determine
    which refrigerated truck dimensions work finest. The very last
    thing you want is a fridge van that doesn’t have the capability to fill
    what you are making an attempt to place into it. Vans have a capacity
    of below three.5 T (tonnes), small trucks
    and trailers have a capacity that adjust between 3.5
    T to 7.5 T, and heavy vans have a capacity of greater than 7.5 T.

  3. Please let me know if you’re looking for a article writer
    for your weblog. You have some really good articles and I
    think I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d absolutely love to write some articles for your blog in exchange for a link
    back to mine. Please send me an e-mail if interested.

    Regards!

  4. Hello! Quick question that’s completely off topic. Do
    you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My weblog looks weird
    when browsing from my iphone4. I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to fix this problem.
    If you have any recommendations, please share. Thank you!

  5. With havin so much content do you ever run into
    any problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My website has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it
    appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know
    any solutions to help protect against content from being stolen? I’d genuinely appreciate it.
