【A-level经济】如果进行A-level经济数据表达?

语言对于中国学生来说是A Level学习中的一个难点,那些关于国家宏观经济数据,或股市大盘分析以及企业股价高低变化的英文描述,经常让人看得头疼。今天,小编总结了英文经济数据表达的要点,快学习起来吧~


 

升、降、高、低描述

英文词语中关于经济数据下跌的描述有很多种,如fall, drop, be lower, slip等,更为严重的还有plummet和collapse等。

微跌:slip, drop, down

例1:Chinese stocks slipped in early trade, with Shanghai stocks dropping 0.7% and Hong Kong's Hang Seng down 1%.

中国股市在早盘出现微跌。上证指数跌了0.7%,而香港恒生指数跌了1%。

例2:Shares closed Friday at $74.73, down 0.5% on the day, 28% for the year to date and 20% for the past 52 weeks.

周五股价报收74.73美元,当日跌幅0.5%,今年迄今为止跌幅28%,过去52周跌幅20%。

跌幅较大:plummet, collapse

例:The FTSE fell 1% while the Dow Jones plummeted 250 points and the price of Brent crude dropped to almost $48.5 a barrel, its lowest point this year.

英国富时指数(FISE)下跌1%,道琼斯指数(Dow Jones)暴跌250点(约至17000点),而布伦特原油价格则跌至每桶48.5美元,创下年内最低。

达到某一数值,用介词to连接

日本产经指数225下跌了1.8%,至18743.83点,香港恒生指数下跌了1%,至22420.89点。

表达增减的幅度,用介词by连接

表示增减的具体数字:lose/gain

例1:The Dow fell for the first time in seven days Tuesday, losing 49 points to 17,081. The S&P 500 lost 13 to 2003. The S&P has rebounded smartly, gaining about 7% since retesting its August low on Sept. 28.

13日,道琼斯指数七日内首次下跌,收市报17081点,下跌了49点。标普500指数报收2003点,下跌了13点。自9月28日再一次跌至8月低值后,标普指数迅速回升并上涨7%。

同比描述

在财经词语中,同比是指与上一自然年度(或财年)的同一时期(如月或季度)相比较而得得出的增长或下降的比率。

通常,表示同比时,可以用以下表达:

▷from the same period last year

▷compared to the previous year

▷from a year earlier

▷year-on-year

例1:The Hangzhou-based company reported revenue of $3.27 billion for its June quarter, an increase of 28% from the same period last year, down from a 40% year-on-year revenue increase in the previous quarter. 

阿里巴巴第一财季营收32.7亿美元,同比增长28%,较上一季度40%的增长有所下降。

九月,工业产值同比增长5.7%,经济学家预计的中位数为6%。

例1:Food prices fell by 2.5% in the year to September in the wake of continued supermarket price wars. This means that prices in the sector fell for the 15th month in a row.

英磅兑换欧元和美元走弱,美元的汇率接近17个月来的最低,为1:1.5188,与欧元的汇率则下跌了2%。

峰值和低谷

在某种趋势(momentum)达到了最高或是最低时,通常用highest或lowest来表示。

最低点:lowest 或 lowest level
