- Durable Goods

Consumer Impact Indicators
Consumer impact indicators are all related to consumption—the largest contributing core economic indicator to GDP (historically). These indicators tend to be more volatile and more intertwined with short-term market trends (consumption drives earnings, which typically drive the market). As such, these indicators may provide context into present-day market movement.
