From the Back Cover:

In the wake of an unprecedented financial crisis, of a magnitude not seen for almost 100 years, understanding how key economic and market statistics drive financial market trends is vital for students, traders and market practitioners.

Global economics has encountered a seismic shift. In the UK, 16 years of uninterrupted growth ended in double-dip recession. The US encountered its biggest ever recession. Emergent economies are jostling to join the top rank and we are witnessing the rise of alternative financial centres and a new global financial market landscape. These trends are leading to rapid and unprecedented change. New technology is making markets more accessible and transparent and investment decisions are instantly reflected in market pricing, creating scope for greater market volatility. Many of these decisions are made on a data driven, statistics based materiality. Unfolding news, as reflected in economic and market data, is leading to a greater need to understand these figures, and what different interpretations can mean for investable assets.

Trading Economics: A Guide to the Use of Economic Statistics for Traders and Practitioners cuts through the economic and market noise, delivering a clear view of how statistics interact to create and demonstrate economic trends and movements. Of equal value to market traders and practitioners, financiers, government officials, financial journalists, economics and business students as to the interested observer, the book is presented in an easy to reference layout, using language that eschews jargon. It provides a unique insight into the statistics that have an impact on global financial markets and offers a hands on guide for those who want to understand how financial statistics work, and how to profit from them in the widest sense.

From the Inside Flap:

“Now, more than ever, market participants need to know howto interpret economic statistics and how to weigh their importance.In this book Trevor Williams and Victoria Turton provide aninvaluable guide, which I can recommend.”
David Smith, Economics Editor, The Sunday Times

“High frequency trading algorithms have amplified thepotential gains associated with the intelligent pre-emption ofofficial data releases. Accurate, real time information on theglobal economy and its constituent parts has long been a Holy Grailfor financial markets. The advent of technology capable ofdigesting Big Data raises the tantalising possibility that, infuture, economic statistics will be derived not from laggardsurveys and returns, but from the assimilation of publicinformation on the internet in real time. MIT’s‘Billion Prices Project’ points the way. For now, theevolving abundance of surveys, diffusion indexes, surprise andnews-flow indicators makes for a baffling cacophony. TradingEconomics takes a fresh look at the wealth of available economicinformation, sifts what is most important and explains why. Foranyone keen to gauge the market-moving potential of economic data,this book is a valuable resource.”
Peter Warburton, Director, Economic PerspectivesLtd
