The Conference Board’s leading US economic index fell in December, falling 1.0% to 110.5 (2016 = 100). The December drop follows his 1.1% drop in November.

The LEI is now down 4.2% in the six months from June 2022 to December. This is a steeper drop than the 1.9% drop in the six months from December 2021 to June 2022.

“Macroeconomic activity is likely to turn negative in the coming quarters before picking up again in the final quarter of 2023,” he said.
