U.S. Economic Calendar Event Update - Feb 12

Tuesday, February 12, 2013 8:46 AM

These are the U.S. economic calendar events for Tuesday, February 12, 2013. All times are EST.

Treasury Budget for Jan are scheduled to be released at 2:00 PM. Analysts are estimating a result of $-2B. The prior period for Treasury Budget had a result of $-27.4B. This event has a low effect on US markets.

At the release of important events, US equity markets (INDEXSP:.INX) can make major moves. Be sure to keep an eye on S&P (NYSEARCA:SPY), Nasdaq (NYSEARCA:QQQ) and Dow Jones (NYSEARCA:DIA) at the time of announcements.

Here is some more information about the events discussion in this article.

Treasury Budget: The monthly Treasury budget data follow strong seasonal patterns which produce huge month-to-month fluctuations in the deficit. These fluctuations tell us little about long term budget trends. To the extent that the market analyses the monthly Treasury data, the focus is on year/year changes in receipts and outlays, since the data are not seasonally adjusted. Only in April, the most important month for tax inflows to the Treasury, does the market pay any attention to this report. The data can be predicted with reasonable accuracy by using daily data in the Daily Treasury Statement.
