Economic Indicators
 
Economic Indicators analysis is the examination of the underlying forces that affect the interests of the economy, industrial sectors and companies. As with most analysis, the goal is to derive a forecast for the future. Learning the monthly sequence of economic releases and market reaction to each release is one of the first steps in learning to track the economy. Forex traders should be taught to compare market expectations with actual economic indicators and then evaluate market reactions. It's the difference between market expectations for an economic release and the actual release number that primarily affect market movement.

Use the "Economic Calendar" subsection to keep up with release dates.
