Germany’s Economy Enjoys Slight Improvement

By The Conference Board, Special for  USDR

The Conference Board Leading Economic Index® (LEI) for Germany increased 0.4 percent in April 2017 to 109.8  (2010=100).

The Conference Board Coincident Economic Index® (CEI) for Germany decreased 0.1 percent in April 2017 to 108.0  (2010=100).

The composite economic indexes are the key elements in an analytic system designed to signal peaks and troughs in the business cycle. The leading and coincident economic indexes are essentially composite averages of several individual leading or coincident indicators. They are constructed to summarize and reveal common turning point patterns in economic data in a clearer and more convincing manner than any individual component – primarily because they smooth out some of the volatility of individual  components.
