GDI - Global Demand Indicator™
We have developed the GDI™ to monitor global economic activity in real-time by using machine learning techniques to extract fundamental demand shocks from a basket of commodity prices. Our methodology filters unexpected global demand shocks reflected in forward looking commodity prices from idiosyncratic supply & demand shocks. The GDI™ has proved to predict consistently official statistics on global industrial production and global growth. A positive number reflects an unexpected increased in global demand and vice versa.
The GDI™ can be used for internal use and for research material as long QA - Quick Algorithm GDI™ is clearly reported as the data source. To download the data click on the chart below.
