Consensus Outlook
The spread between short rates and long rates is narrowing yet expectations for the index of leading economic indicators, where the yield spread has been a strong contributor, are solidly positive. Forecasters are calling for a 0.3 percent gain in May driven by exceptional strength in ISM manufacturing orders and the month's rise in the stock market.

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
