  • How To Use Leading Indicators To Time The Market 0 comments
    Apr 17, 2013 10:19 AM

    Leading indicators are indicators that usually change before the economy as a whole changes.[1] They are therefore useful as short-term predictors of the economy. Stock market returns are a leading indicator: the stock market usually begins to decline before the economy as a whole declines and usually begins to improve before the general economy begins to recover from a slump. Other leading indicators include the index of consumer expectations, building permits, and the money supply.[citation needed] The Conference Board publishes a composite Leading Economic Index consisting of ten indicators designed to predict activity in the U. S. economy six to nine months in future.

    The modified "Leading Indicator for the United States" is probably the most reliable tool (last observation: Feb. 2013). As of February 2013, no recession in sight.
