  First Trust Wins Economic Forecaster of the Month Award
Posted Under: Data Watch • Markets

MarketWatch awarded the First Trust economics team with the "Forecaster of the Month" Award for November 2011.  On a regular basis, 43 forecasters submit estimates to MarketWatch for weekly and monthly economic data.  Analysts at MarketWatch then determine who was closest to the mark on a consistent basis for the month as a whole.  This is the second time the First Trust Economics Team has won this award.  Wesbury was recognized as the Forecaster of the Month by MarketWatch in 2005, prior to joining First Trust.
