Point-in-time time series with revision history

“We visualise big picture macro themes by assembling relevant, cleaned and curated macroeconomic data. We then transform that data across developed and emerging markets into quantitative indicators through intuitive transformations, high quality controls, deploying point-in-time timestamps and applying strict out-of-sample estimation and construction decisions. Being able to access Macrobond’s huge database through a Web API has allowed us to dramatically increase the speed with which we onboard new data, which means we can share insights and make informed decisions even more quickly.”
