TTC 005: Understanding Financial and Economic Statistics

Financial markets are continually subjected to a flow of central bank, government, corporate and business sector economic statistics, some with more impact on market conditions than others. It is vital that professional traders understand each statistic, its terms and uniqueness and the impact it has on the different products that are traded in the market. This Module breaks down the mass of economic statistics into the following categories: Monetary, Growth, Inflation, labour, Industry and Consumer sentiment

Our objective is: • To introduce the range of different statistics that are announced by various institutions every week • To discuss trading opportunities that these statistical announcements provide • To use Bloomberg and other information resources to highlight and identify these important events

Core Topics

Part 1 Monetary Policy and Central Bank Announcements • Quarterly Bulletins, Inflation reports • Current Account, Money Supply, Trade balance and GDP • FOMC Interest rates decisions, Borrowing and Lending

Part 2 Growth, Inflation and Consumer and Economic Business sentiment Statistics • Leading Economic Indicators • CPI, RPI, Retail Sales and Retail surveys • Consumer Sentiment surveys • Building permits, new home sales and existing home sales • Business Sentiment Surveys

Part 3 Labour, Industry and Employment Statistics • Labour productivity, Working Hours and Wages, • Unemployment, Weekly Jobless Claims and Non-Farm Payroll • Industrial production, output,  • PPI Producer prices,  • PMI Indices and Factory gate inflation

"I chose to study the Finance Trading Programme (FTP) as I wanted to get a more hands-on approach on complex financial topics. During normal lectures, we don’t have the time to see whether the theories we learn are applicable to the real world, and if they are, how. The Trading Programme provides me with the practical tools that I will need in the real world to analyse the markets and based on that, take trades." - MSc Investment and Finance Student
