Global Monetary Policy Rate Index - Developed Markets
Following on from the initial launch of the GMPRI [Global Monetary Policy Index] this research note focuses on the Developed Markets sub-index. The first point to note is that we have developed history for the index back to January 1999 (data file is available at the bottom of this article). While the method of GDP weighting is also discussed, we have overlain a couple of key data series with the index to demonstrate the value of the index in strategy and forecasting.
