Highlights
July was a second month of strength for the index of leading economic indicators, rising 0.6 percent to hit the top end of Econoday's consensus range and just exceeding June's 0.5 percent gain. This strength offers a favorable indication for the second-half economy.

Consensus Outlook
The index of leading economic indicators heated back up in June to a 0.5 percent rise following cooling in May to a 0.2 percent monthly gain. Continued strength and an upbeat outlook on the second half is the call for July, at an increase of 0.4 percent.

Definition
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
