Data Revision and Market Response: The Case of United States Trade Balance Announcements
In this paper, the authors study the economic news, as reflected in the announcements of the United States trade balance by the Commerce Department, to illustrate the importance of revised data versus preliminary data to economic agents. A new methodology has been developed here to study how agents in the exchange market respond to these monthly trade balance announcements and, consequently, move the dollar's exchange rate. In contrast to previous studies where agent reactions to only preliminary trade figures were analyzed, this method is applied to examine market reactions to the preliminary and revised trade balance figures.
