US economic growth moves ahead at ‘solid pace’: The Conference Board

August 17, 2018

The Conference Board’s US Leading Economic Index rose 0.6% in July to a reading of 110.7 (2016 = 100), following a 0.5% increase in June, and a 0.1% increase in May.

“The US LEI increased in July, suggesting the US economy will continue expanding at a solid pace for the remainder of this year,” said Ataman Ozyildirim, director of business cycles and growth research at The Conference Board. “The strengths among the components of the leading index were very widespread, with unemployment claims, the financial components and the ISM New Orders Index making the largest positive contributions.”
