Gross national product definition

Gross National Product, abbreviated to GNP, is a measure of the monetary value of all the goods and services produced by a country’s citizens, regardless of their location, in a period. This means that the production levels of citizens will be taken into account when calculating their country’s GNP. As an economic indicator, the GNP signals a country’s economic health both domestically and abroad.

 

Using GNP in trading

GNP is an important indicator that fundamental analysts use when gauging the overall health of a country’s economy domestically and abroad. This means it has the potential to affect the performance of financial markets including the stock, forex, and commodities markets. For example, a higher than expected GNP growth rate may mean a country is experiencing economic growth.

 

Limitations of GNP

However, there are limitations when it comes to using the GNP’s growth rate to analyse a country’s economic health. For one, the GNP encompasses the production levels of a country’s citizens abroad. This means it may not be an entirely accurate reflection of the economic activity within the borders of the country, especially if a significant portion of its economic output is generated abroad.

 

GNP and GDP

Therefore, GNP’s counterpart, GDP (Gross Domestic Product), is more frequently used by traders when analysing a country’s economic health. GDP is a more comprehensive measure of a country’s internal economic activity. This makes it a more relevant data point for governments when it comes to setting domestic monetary policies, which affect the performance of financial markets.

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.
