Highlights
The index of leading economic indicators rose a solid 0.5 percent in December reflecting improving sentiment on the outlook and pointing to an extension, but not yet acceleration, for the economy's moderate pace. Other data include respectable 0.3 percent gains for both the coincident index and the lagging index.

Recent History Of This Indicator
The index of leading economic indicators has been pointing to flat economic conditions ahead and failed, despite gains in confidence and the stock market, to signal any strength in November, coming in unchanged due to weakness in building permits and factory components. For December, the LEI is expected to bounce higher with a 0.4 percent gain.

Definition
The index of leading economic indicators is a composite of 10 forward-looking components including building permits, new factory orders, and unemployment claims. The report attempts to predict general economic conditions six months out.  Why Investors Care
