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.
