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. Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted
    and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger
    but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any helpful hints for inexperienced blog writers?
    I’d certainly appreciate it.

  2. I found myself advised this website by my cousin. I am
    not sure no matter if this particular article is
    created by your because no one else see such comprehensive about my own issues.
    You may be extraordinary! Cheers!

  3. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems
    as though you relied on the video to make your point.
    You clearly know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

  4. First of all I want to say awesome blog! I had a quick question which I’d
    like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you
    center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.

    I’ve had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out.
    I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first
    10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted just trying to figure
    out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Kudos!

  5. There’s other types of DLC such as a few weapons and alternate costumes.
    I like the simple CQC systrm they placed in there,
    as it did add a layger of depth on how you wernt
    about approached enemies. You wait for the computer to shlw
    yoou a four-button pattern, thenn repeat the pattern ass
    quickly as possible.

  6. Hi, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog site in Safari, it looks
    fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that,
    awesome blog!
