What Economic Indicators Are There?
Around the world, various governmental and non-governmental agencies report on a regular basis, with certain pieces of economic information. The methods by which these reports are put together can vary considerably.
Sometimes, the data is as direct as reporting monthly sales from a particular segment of the economy. Others may not come from hard data, instead being based on opinions recorded within surveys. Still, others may derive their findings from extrapolating existing data.
Some indicators will inform you about the current state of economy; while others may confirm what the economy previously did; and others may predict what is yet to come.
This final set – known as leading economic indicators – are of particular interest to traders, as they offer the best insight into the likely trajectory of future economic activity. The indicators that tell us about the current state of economy are called 'coincident'. Those that confirm what has already occurred are known as lagging indicators.
All three have their uses and may impact the Forex market in different ways.
The main difficulty for traders who are just starting out is knowing which are the important ones – those that are most likely to affect prices – and which ones are low-impact.
This knowledge is useful as there may be many economic indicators released in a single day, and it's not really realistically possible to keep an eye on them all. To try and help in this area, we have put together an explanatory list of Forex economic indicators.
