EUR German Retail Sales (MoM) (JAN)

Measures changes in sales of the German retail sector. Given that consumption makes up a significant portion of German GDP, the Retail Sales figure can act as an indicator of domestic demand. High or rising Retail Sales may spur German consumption, translating into economic growth. However, uncontrolled growth runs the risk of inflationary pressures. Since Germany is a large part of the Euro-zone, German figures may have some impact on the market. The headline figure is expressed in percentage change in the value of sales.

EUR Euro-Zone Unemployment Rate (JAN)

Reports the cumulative percentage of unemployed individuals in the Euro-zone nations. A low or falling unemployment rate is associated with increased expenditure, given that more people are employed and have incoming wages. Increased expenditure encourages economic growth, which can spark inflation. The figure acts as a significant indicator of the region's economic activity, particularly because it is released earlier than the GDP. However, because unemployment rates for member countries are released well before the aggregate Euro-zone rate, the figure often receives less attention.

EUR Euro-Zone Consumer Price Index Core (YoY) (FEB A)

EUR Euro-Zone Consumer Price Index Estimate (YoY) (FEB)

CPI is the key gauge for inflation in the Euro Zone. Inflation, simply put, is a decline in the purchasing power of the Euro, where each Euro buys fewer goods and services due to higher consumer prices. The index tracks changes in the price of a basket of goods and services that a typical household might purchase. When the CPI is high, it indicates that significant inflationary pressures exist in Euro Zone economies. This puts pressure on the European Central Bank to raise interest rates. When CPI comes out lower than expected the ECB is expected to lower interest rates, or keep them lower, to encourage economic growth. As a rule, the Bank adjusts rates in order to keep Europe consumer price inflation in the 0 to 2 percent range.The CPI is also expressed as Core CPI, a similar measure that excludes energy and food in the basket of goods for the reason that items are highly volatile in price and can distort the CPI. Some market participants believe that Core CPI provides a better representation of inflation. The headline figures for the Euro-zone Inflation Index are a monthly and annualized percentage change.

CAD Quarterly Gross Domestic Product Annualized (4Q)

A comprehensive measure of a Canada 's overall production and consumption of goods and services. GDP is a significant report in FX Market, serving as one of the primary indicators of a country's overall economic health. Robust GDP growth signals a heightened level of economic activity and often a higher demand for the domestic currency. At the same time, economic expansion raises concerns about inflationary pressures which may prompt monetary authorities to increase interest rates. Thus positive GDP readings are generally bullish for the Canadian Dollar, while negative readings are generally bearish. Most production reports that lead to Canadian GDP are released before the official GDP number. Therefore, actual GDP figures usually confirm expectations. However, an unexpected release can move markets due to the significance of the figure

USD Personal Income (JAN)

Broad gauge of employee earnings in the US . Personal Income measures the pre-tax income households receive from employment, investments, and transfer payments. As wages and salaries make up the majority of Personal Income, the figure can provide insight on the US employment situation. However, because Personal Income is released after the headline employment figure and earnings figures, its impact on the market is muted. The figure is still useful in gauging the purchasing ability of consumers, though, as rising Personal Income allows for strong consumers spending. Such spending drives output growth and fuels the US economy.

USD ISM Manufacturing (FEB)

The ISM Manufacturing Survey is valued for its timeliness, and indeed, during waning boom cycles analyst point out that ISM tends to be one of the biggest market moving economic releases. The reasoning lies within the ISM's Prices Paid and Employment subcomponents. These components reflect sentiment towards inflation and labor conditions - two of the market's most significant health indicators. Given that the ISM's timeliness, the information gleaned from such components precedes other market data (like Non-Farm Payrolls or CPI), making the ISM a significant indicator. The headline figure is expressed as a diffusion index based on survey responses. For each category (production, new orders etc.), the index is calculated by adding the percentage of executive responding "higher" with half the percentage of "no change" responses, and subtracting the percentage of "lower" responses. The ISM manufacturing indicator is the aggregate of the results for all categories.
