Gross Domestic Product definition

Gross Domestic Product, abbreviated to GDP, is a measure of the monetary value of all the goods and services produced within a country’s borders in a period. This means the production levels of foreign nationals residing in a country will be taken into account when calculating its GDP. As an economic indicator, the GDP figure signals a country’s economic health and its production levels within its borders.

 

Using GDP in trading

GDP is an important indicator that fundamental analysts use when gauging the overall health of a country’s economy, and it has the potential to affect the performance of financial markets including the stock, forex, and commodities markets.

For example, if a country’s GDP growth rate is higher than expected, this could mean that the country is experiencing economic growth. This can lead to an increased interest and investor confidence in the country’s currency, pushing up its demand and thus its driving up its exchange rate in the forex market.

Conversely, if a country’s GDP growth rate is lower than expected, this could mean the country is experiencing an economic downturn. This can lead to a decreased interest and investor confidence in the country’s currency, decreasing its demand and thus its lowering its exchange rate in the forex market.

The GDP growth rate may also be used by investors to analyse the performance of individual companies or sectors within the economy. For example, when the GDP growth rate is low, it may mean there is an economic downturn occurring. Consumers tend to cut back on non-essential spending, which can cause the retail and entertainment industries to suffer.

Investing in CFDs involves a high degree of risk that you will lose your money due to the use of leverage, particularly in fast moving markets, where a relatively small movement in the price can lead to a proportionately larger movement in the value of your investment. This can result in loses that exceed the funds in your account. You should consider whether you understand how CFDs work and you should seek independent advice if necessary.
