Leading Economic Indicators Up Slightly in March

The Conference Board Leading Economic Index (LEI) for the U.S. increased 0.4% in March to 111.9, following a 0.1% increase in February, and no change in January. In March the LEI for the U.S. recorded its largest monthly increase since September of last year. However, its six-month growth has continued to slow in the past several months.

In the six-month period ending March 2019, the leading economic index increased 0.4% (about a 0.7% annual rate), much slower than the growth of 2.8% (about a 5.6% annual rate) during the previous six months.
