U.S. Prelim GDP q/q
Today’s U.S. session will be important as various economic indicators are scheduled to release at 1230 GMT/1800 IST. They are U.S. Prelim GDP q/q, Unemployment claims weekly, U.S. Durable Goods orders and U.S. Core Durable Goods Orders. Later on at 1400 GMT/1930 IST, U.S. has scheduled to release Pending Home Sales data too. All the above indicators are likely to bring high volatility in to the U.S. dollar and thus on Gold too.
Prelim GDP q/q (1230 GMT/1800 IST):
It’s the broadest measure of economic activity and the primary gauge of the economy’s health. The ‘Previous’ listed is the ‘Actual’ from the Advance release. There are 3 versions of GDP released a month apart – Advance, Preliminary, and Final. The Advance release is the earliest and thus tends to have the most impact.
Pending Home Sales:
It’s a leading indicator of economic health because the sale of a home triggers a wide-reaching ripple effect. For example, renovations are done by the new owners, a mortgage is sold by the financing bank, and brokers are paid to execute the transaction.
