Economic Indicators – Inflation & Employment

Inflation and employment/unemployment reports are major economic indicators that impact financial markets. The prices of various financial instruments often react sharply to fluctuations in these variables, particularly if the released data contains some unexpected figures.

 

This course looks at a number of inflation and employment indicators in detail, and describes how these reports filter through to affect the prices of various financial instruments. A number of real-life examples from recent years are included to demonstrate how inflation and employment data impact financial markets in practice.
