U.S. GDP (QoQ) is the comparison of growth from one fiscal quarter to the next, represented in a percentage format.GDP (QoQ) is a leading indicator of U.S. economic health. High levels of GDP growth are viewed as being positive for U.S. indices as well as the USD. Low levels of growth are negative to most asset classes and are common to recessionary cycles. The U.S. Federal Reserve (FED) places a great deal of emphasis on quarterly GDP. Robust growth is often a prelude to monetary tightening, while stagnate levels provide an environment conducive to Quantitative Easing (QE).Traders monitor GDP (QoQ) releases closely. Abnormal reports may cause rapid buying or selling of the U.S. indices or USD. Currency, equities, and commodities markets all exhibit enhanced degrees of volatility surrounding the GDP release.
