US Economy is on the Shaky Grounds
What will happen?
The United States will publish the Advance GDP on January 27, at 15:30 GMT+2. This is an annualized change in the inflation-adjusted value of all goods and services produced in the economy.
Why is it important?
It's not a secret that GDP is one of the most important measures of a country's economic activity. Being calculated as a change in the value of all goods and services produced by the economy, it serves as an indicator of economic health. The US economy grew by an annualized 2.3% in Q3 2021. However, the initial data that was published on October 28 showed an increase only by 2% (vs. the forecast of 2.6%). As a result, the US dollar fell.
