After swinging sharply on hurricane effects in September and October, the index of leading economic indicators is back at a steady and healthy pace of growth at a 0.4 percent gain in November. Initial jobless claims have returned to pre-hurricane levels with financial indicators, manufacturing orders and consumer sentiment also positives. Other readings include a 0.3 percent gain for the coincident index and a 0.1 percent gain for the lagging index.

Consensus Outlook
Hurricane effects on unemployment claims and the factory workweek made for volatility in the index of leading economic indicators which surged 1.2 percent in October after posting only a 0.1 percent gain in September. Forecasters see the index returning back to steady growth at a consensus of 0.3 percent for November.

The index of leading economic indicators is a composite of 10 forward-looking components including building permits, new factory orders, and unemployment claims. The report attempts to predict general economic conditions six months out.  Why Investors Care
