An overview of some of the major types of data releases 
New economic data is published almost every day and many of these releases can have an impact on the financial markets. ​These announcements typically provide an insight into the economic health of a country or region, with some types of data, particularly from major economies such as the US, UK, China or eurozone, potentially having wider ramifications. 

The biggest moves in the market usually occur if the figures are a surprise, either falling short of or exceeding general consensus estimates. Some of the major economic announcements, which are typically released either weekly or monthly, include trade balance, consumer price index (inflation), gross domestic product and US non-farm payrolls.
