Variables that influence equity and fixed income markets

 

Economic variables that directly influence equity and fixed income markets are included in the Economic Database. 


It includes primarily data on inflation, the money supply, labor markets, production and output.

Extensive data on monetary aggregates is included in the database. Data for M1, M2 and M3 go back to the 1950s and before, while data on currency in circulation goes back to the 1800s. The Monetary Aggregates can be used to analyze the relationship between the money supply and inflation as well as their influence on financial bubbles. Data are also included on the financial sector, such as the levels of bank reserves, credit, derivatives and other financial instruments.

Because of the strong relationship between monetary expansion and inflation, indices for consumer prices and producer prices are also included in the database so this relationship can be analyzed. One exceptional feature about the Economic Database is that it includes data that extends further back than any other type of data ever calculated. For example, the data for UK Consumer Prices goes back to the 1209. Data on currency and wholesale prices stretch back to the 1700s as well.

Inflation can be analyzed using Wholesale Price Indices, Producer Price Indices and Consumer Price Indices. Dozens of sub-categories of the price indices are provided so the sectoral factors that contribute to the overall inflation rate can be examined. Monthly inflation data for all major economies are available back to the 1920s.

Labor markets can be examined using not only the Unemployment Rate, but also the size of the labor force, unemployment levels and related labor data. Production and Output data, such as Industrial Output and Retail Sales can be used to analyze changes in the macroeconomy.
