The latest composite leading indicators (CLIs) suggest that continued economic expansion lies ahead in the OECD area. October 2006 data show weakening performance in the CLI’s 6-month rate of change in the Euro area and the U.S., but improved performance in Japan. Interest rate spreads are said to be contributing negatively to the performance of the CLIs in all the major seven economies, while business confidence is contributing positively in the Euro area and negatively in Canada and the U.S.

The latest data for major OECD non-member economies point to a weakening outlook for Russia, moderating growth in China and India, and steady expansion in Brazil. Click for OECD Definitions.

The CLI for the OECD area increased by 0.2 point in October to 109.7, from 109.5 in September, but its 6-month rate of change shows a downward trend since March 2006.
