Chinese e-commerce data
This data provides further insight into consumer behavior in China. On average e-commerce represents 14% of total retail sales. As you can see in the chart below, during 2015 and 2016 e-commerce peaked in November.
US bond prices
This data covers bid, ask and close prices, collected and compiled by TreasuryDirect. The data is updated on a daily basis, and published for every day the US market is open. Therefore, US holidays will not reflect a value.
Sovereign bond holdings
This data is collected and compiled by Bruegel, a European think tank in Brussels, specializing in economics. The data is sourced from national sources and covers sectoral holdings of sovereign bonds across twelve countries. For the most part data goes back to the nineties and is available at quarterly frequency.
Electricity Data for Europe
This data is provided by ENTSOE, the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Electricity. The data covers electricity consumption, prices and production. It is collected from TSOs, power exchanges or other qualified third parties, in an effort to facilitate transparency in the European electricity market.
Securities holdings statistics by sector
This data is collected by the European Central Bank and distributed as an aggregate of Euro Area 19. It is collected on a security-by-security basis, and provides information on securities held by Euro area resident sectors, broken down by instrument type and selected issuer countries.
The Credit Suisse Global Wealth Report
The Global Wealth Report is a comprehensive source of information on global household wealth. It provides complete estimates of wealth, covering all regions and the entire wealth spectrum. The report is released annually, and goes back to 2010.
