Basic Economic Numbers 101

Our economy is influenced by an endless number of factors.  Economic data provides us with a measuring stick for understanding how certain pieces of the global economy have been performing.  In a given week, there may be a handful of economic reports being released, and it is difficult to weed out which reports will have a significant influence on the market, if any at all.  This course offers a guide for navigating the sea of economic numbers, as well as instruction on developing a system for keeping track of relevant reports.
