Last week was very interesting for the markets, as we saw the releases of the US Inflation and Disney’s earnings report. So let's see what we should await this week!
US Final GDP will impact USD
What will happen?
The final US GDP will be out at 14:30 MT on March 25. The GDP growth is one of the most important economic indicators for any country and especially for the US. Therefore, traders pay a lot of attention to it. There are 3 versions of GDP released a month apart - Advance, Preliminary, and Final. This report is the third and the last one. The Preliminary report revealed the economic expansion of 4.1% in Q4 2020, slightly higher than the Advance one, which was 4%. In comparison with the 33.4% growth in the third quarter, the Q4 data, of course, wasn’t so encouraging. The continued increase in Covid-19 cases and social distancing restrictions pressed down consumer spending.
