leading indicators

Archives

Leading indicators, also called CB Leading Index and The Conference Board Leading Economic Index (LEI), measure the progress of the US economy by combining values of 10 macroeconomic indicators. The effect of this fundamental indicator is rather weak because the values of its components are known beforehand. Leading indicators are reported by the Conference Board about 20 days after the month’s end. Positive values mean economic expansion while negative values signal contraction. Better-than-expected readings can have a positive effect on the US dollar. Worse-than-expected values tend to hurt the USD. The posts filed under this tag contain the reported values of the leading indicators index since 2007.
