Business Activity indicators vary country by country, but in general are designed to show monthly trends in national business activity. Indicators common to many countries include retail sales (monthly reports tracking the level of consumer spending) and industrial production (reports showing total value of output for factories, mines, utilities, and so on). These indicators are calculated differently by each country, so cannot be used to compare country to country.
Trading FX and/or CFDs on margin is high risk and not suitable for everyone. Losses can exceed investment.
