    Economy improving, leading indicators say - Economic Report - MarketWatch


    The U.S. economy is expected to improve early this year, though global conditions present a risk, the Conference Board said Thursday as it reported a gain in its index of leading economic indicators.

    The private research group’s leading economic index rose 0.4% in December, led by the interest-rate spread. In November, the index rose 0.2%. The LEI’s a weighted gauge of 10 indicators that are designed to signal business cycle peaks and troughs.

    Yes, Obama need to run on his economic record

    85% fully employed, first ever credit downgrade, record debt and deficits that can only be expressed in scientific notation and no budget in over 1,000 days

    Which is it? Is it improving? Or is it expected to improve? They are completely different issues.
    More guessing. When we see real GDP growth, about 5% and good employement numbers, 250k plus than it will be truly improving.

    Oh I know. She created a thread just in my honor.
    I still would like an answer to the question though. What can I say, I am a gluton for punishment.
