Online Data & Analysis
Econoday Online is a comprehensive resource for accessing information on:

  • Economic Events
  • Treasury Events

Designed to follow the trading day, event updates and compelling analysis are displayed in an easy to use format, a daily calendar.

Investors using Econoday begin each day reading Market Focus, which highlights the events of critical importance that day. The trading day ends with Market Reflections, a recap of the activity in the fixed income and equity markets. Throughout the day updates of announcements are posted including consensus and actual release data accompanied by unbiased, jargon-free, market-focused analysis written by our team of economists led by Anne Picker, author of "International Economic Indicators and Central Banks".

More than an Economic Calendar
The goal of Econoday is to enhance investors' understanding of the relationship of economic news to market activity. So integrated into the calendar are a number of resources for investors including descriptive information on each event that goes beyond a definition, by encompassing the reasons "Why Investors Care". Each week in-depth articles summarizing the domestic and global markets appear. Always accessible are modules focused on a specific topic such as the Bond Market, Equity Market, Fed Watching, Country Profiles and Economic Chart Room. Each module provides a comprehensive overview of the subject including a collection of articles and current trend graphs with commentary offering a short-term and long-term perspective.

All content is archived in the Econoday calendar so investors can go back years to a specific date and see exactly what was posted on that day. They also have access to years of articles on various subjects for independent research and analysis.

Bond Markets

Bond Market Charts - This section depicts in pictures and words the direction of various fixed income securities, particularly in their relationship to default risk.

Treasury Market Charts - This section depicts in pictures and words the key Treasury market securities and their relationship to the federal funds rate.

Treasury Auctions - This section includes all weekly, monthly and quarterly Treasury auctions for key securities.
Equity Markets
About the Stock Market - This section reveals that many stock market measures don't always move in tandem. Investors are advised to compare individual portfolios to a variety of market indexes, not just the Dow Jones Industrials or the Nasdaq composite.

The Dow Jones Family - This section shows long term and short- term changes in the key market indexes compiled by Dow Jones including the Industrials, Transportation, and Utility indexes.

The S&P Family - This section shows long and short-term changes in some key indexes compiled by Standard and Poor's.

Fed Watching
About the Fed - This section describes the institution, the relevance of the Fed to financial markets, and gives a glossary of key terms.

Fed Watching Indicators - This section depicts in pictures and in words key factors that are leading indicators for Fed policymaking.

Chart Room
Indicators of Production & Sales - This section depicts GDP and its key components, detailing growth in the U.S. economy. Economic growth directly impacts corporate profits and therefore stock prices.

Indicators of Inflation - Several indicators reveal inflation in goods, services, and wages. These various measures are compared here. Inflation erodes the purchasing power of current and future investments. Low and stable inflation rates benefit consumers and investors.

Federal Reserve Policy - The Fed is mainly concerned with inflation and factors that portend inflationary pressures. The Fed determines whether to ease or tighten credit conditions based on economic and inflationary conditions.

Interest Rates - This section shows a comparison of key interest rates. The difference between long and short-term rates tells us about the economy. Also, it allows us to make more informed investment decisions if we are interested in the fixed income market.

Stock Prices - This section shows long-term trends in key stock price indices.
Country Profiles
In the present market environment, it is especially important for investors to keep track of what is happening elsewhere in the world. This module presents an encapsulated view of the major world economic powers - Britain, European Monetary Union, Japan and the United States. A description of the climate of the economic environment is accompanied by the country stats, recent economic performance, the history and value of the currency, an overview of the Central Bank and equity markets.
