Impact of economic news on fin markets

I came across this very useful light read on how various economic news -GDP, inflation, unemployment etc. impact various kinds of financial markets – equity. bond, currency etc.

Exploring how the release of new economic data affects asset prices in the stock, bond, and foreign exchange markets, the authors find that only a few announcements—the nonfarm payroll numbers, the GDP advance release, and a private sector manufacturing report—generate price responses that are economically significant and measurably persistent. Bond yields show the strongest response and stock prices the weakest. The authors’ analysis of the direction of these effects suggests that news of stronger-than-expected growth and inflation generally prompts a rise in bond yields and the exchange value of the dollar.

It also is a nice primer on the way certain financial markets should react to the economic news.
