About GDP (QoY) (China)
Gross Domestic Product (GDP) measures the total value of a country’s industrial output over a given period. It consists of the aggregate domestic production of goods and services by individuals, businesses, and government. GDP data is available in dollar or index form. Chinese GDP (QoY) is the comparison of growth from one fiscal quarter of the previous year to the same quarter of the current year, represented in a percentage format.GDP (MoM) is a leading indicator of economic health in China. High levels of GDP growth are viewed as being positive for Asian indices in general as well as the AUD. Low levels of growth are negative to most asset classes and are common to recessionary cycles. The People's Bank of China (PBOC) places a great deal of emphasis on quarterly and yearly GDP. Robust growth is often a prelude to monetary tightening, while stagnate levels provide an environment conducive to Quantitative Easing (QE).Traders monitor GDP releases closely. Abnormal reports may cause rapid buying or selling of the Asian indices or AUD. Currency, equities, and commodities markets all exhibit enhanced degrees of volatility surrounding the GDP release.
