How is GDP Growth Calculated on the EdgeFinder?

EdgeFinder GDP Score Calculation (Indices)

For scoring indices, the EdgeFinder considers the latest produced GDP figures relative to the forecasted value.

In reference to the stock market, strong GDP prints can suggest growth, and in turn can help to boost corporate earnings.

If the latest figure is higher than what was forecasted, the EdgeFinder's scoring system considers this bullish (+1) for the associated stock market index/indices.

If the latest figure is lower than what was forecasted, the EdgeFinder's scoring system considers this bearish (-1) for the associated stock market index/indices.

For example, if US GDP comes out higher than expected, this would be considered bullish for the Nasdaq, DOW Jones, S&P500, and Russell 2000 and each would receive a +1 in the "GDP" column of the EdgeFinder's total scoring system.

EdgeFinder GDP Score Calculation (Gold)

For scoring gold, the EdgeFinder considers the latest produced GDP figures relative to the forecasted value.

In reference to gold, strong GDP prints can suggest growth and prosperity - which makes gold look less attractive. Gold is traditionally considered a safe haven, in which investors will flock to in times of uncertainty.

If the latest US GDP figure is higher than what was forecasted, the EdgeFinder's scoring system considers this bearish (+1) for gold.

If the latest US GDP figure is lower than what was forecasted, the EdgeFinder's scoring system considers this bullish (+1) for gold.

EdgeFinder GDP Score Calculation (Industrial Commodities)

For scoring industrial commodities (copper, silver, platinum, oil), the EdgeFinder considers the latest produced GDP figures relative to the forecasted value.

In reference to industrial commodities, strong GDP prints can suggest growth, and in turn can help to boost demand for raw materials.

If the latest figure is higher than what was forecasted, the EdgeFinder's scoring system considers this bullish (+1) for industrial commodities.

If the latest figure is lower than what was forecasted, the EdgeFinder's scoring system considers this bearish (-1) for industrial commodities.
