Global Macro Scoreboard

Global Macro Scoreboard: January 28

This week, international online audiences turned their attention to trade issues, the U.S. federal budget and debt, and Brazil's political landscape after an appeals court upheld a corruption ruling against presidential frontrunner Luiz InĂ¡cio Lula da Silva.


The score on the left denotes the percentage share an issue captured of the weekly total upswing in digital attention across all major macro issues. For example, U.S.-China Trade accounted for more than 15 percent of the total increase in online attention to market-moving macro issues over the course of the week.
