The Conference Board's Leading Economic Indicators (LEI) continued its decline in October, dropping 0.8% MoM (worse than the 0.7% decline expected).

  • The biggest positive contributor to the leading index was building permits at +0.03

  • The biggest negative contributor was ISM N new orders and average consumer expectations both at -0.22

This is the 19th straight MoM decline in the LEI (and 18th month of 19) -  the longest streak of declines since 'Lehman' (22 straight months of declines from June 2007 to April 2008)
