Recent History Of This Indicator
Hurricane factors including higher jobless claims and a shorter workweek pulled down the index of leading economic indicators by 0.2 percent in September. But claims have since fallen back while the workweek has climbed, these together with a jump in building permits point to strength for October's LEI. Forecasters see the LEI rising 0.6 percent.

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
