  • Welcome to the Investors Trading Academy talking glossary of financial terms and events.

  • Our word of the day is "GROSS DOMESTIC PRODUCT (GDP)"

  • Gross Domestic Product is commonly referred to as GDP. The GDP is one of the primary indicators

  • used to gauge the health of a country's economy. It represents the total dollar value of all

  • goods and services produced over a specific time period - you can think of it as the size

  • of the economy. Usually, GDP is expressed as a comparison to the previous quarter or

  • year. For example, if the year-to-year GDP is up 3%, this is thought to mean that the

  • economy has grown by 3% over the last year. As one can imagine GDP has a large impact

  • on nearly everyone within that economy. For example, when the economy is healthy, you

  • will typically see low unemployment and wage increases as businesses demand labor to meet

  • the growing economy. A significant change in GDP, whether up or down, usually has a

  • significant effect on the stock market. It's not hard to understand why: a bad economy

  • usually means lower profits for companies, which in turn means lower stock prices. Investors

  • really worry about negative GDP growth, which is one of the factors economists use to determine

  • whether an economy is in a recession. Measuring GDP is complicated which is why

  • we leave it to the economists, but at its most basic, the calculation can be done in

  • one of two ways: either by adding up what everyone earned in a year called the income

  • approach, or by adding up what everyone spent known as the expenditure method. Logically,

  • both measures should arrive at roughly the same total.
