Macroeconomic data & Economic events on 19 – 23 April 2021

You have to find and interpret data about key economic indicators, such as unemployment, GDP and house sales, in order to analyse the health of the world's economies and make better trading decisions.

Macroeconomic data are the fields on which you must concentrate when you want to get a clear and true picture of an economy. This is because, when you read the news, reporter by people, even unintentionally interpret the information and make it their own, what is left is an opinion rather than reality. You, as a trader, must be focused on and only interested in reality.

Every day, Forex traders (and others) study and analyse news and macroeconomic data in order to exploit them profitably in their trading activities. When they are given news that creates a slight instability in a currency, this currency tends to lose purchase value, that is, to lose value against other currencies.

I wish to state that it is not necessary to be expert economists, all you need is dedication to your trading activities, just like with any other job.

Below, you can see the most important events and macroeconomic data for the week of 19 – 23 April 2021 (GMT+0 – Western European Standard Time Zone) of the world’s most important economies, those that move the markets.
