Listed below are reports from the Global Economic Conditions Survey, carried out jointly by ACCA and IMA. With issues dating back to 2009, this is the largest regular economic survey of accountants in the world, in terms of both the number of respondents and the range of economic variables it monitors. Its main indices are good predictors of GDP growth in the OECD countries and daily trend deviations correlate well with the VIX or ‘fear’ index, which measures expected stock price volatility.
