Description

This paper observes the analysis of macroeconomic indicators on stock market performance. Indicators have specific release dates and provide a general view of market performance. The stock market performance is represented by the Standard and Poor’s (S&P) 500 index. I imagine that, as macroeconomic indicators are released and move in positive directions, the stock market positively reacts. This analysis uses gross domestic product (GDP), consumer price index (CPI), unemployment rates, treasury bond yields, and University of Michigan consumer sentiment. According to the regressions conducted in this analysis, I will make a statement on the relationships once completed.
