Job Creation Index

The Job Creation Index is a measure created by Gallup, a global research-based consultancy. It is calculated using two measures based on results gathered from telephone interviews with more than 3000 workers. The first measure is the percentage of workers who claim that their employer is reducing the size of its workforce by letting people leave and the second measure is the percentage of those who say that their employer is expanding the size of its workforce by creating new jobs and hiring new workers.

The Job Creation Index is the result of the subtraction of the first measure (Less jobs) from the second one (More jobs). A value of zero indicates that percentage of people saying that their employer is reducing its workforce size is the same than the percentage of people saying that their employer is increasing its workforce size and therefore a positive value is a good sign for the economy while a negative value is usually considered bad.

This economic indicator is downloaded by this item and it is associated with "^JOB_INDEX" ticker symbol. Historical data spans from January 2008 to present and it is updated every week.

There are several other job-based economic indicators available for download. Here are some of them: Initial Jobless Claims - Historical data, Google domestic trends data, Historical Jobless Rate.

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
