Leading Indicators
Components of an index released monthly by the U.S. Commerce Department's Bureau of Economic Analysis.
    
A measure used to predict the financial condition and stability of a particular industry or the economy in general, represented by such indicators as the unemployment rate. The index of leading indicators, the components of which are adjusted for Inflation, has accurately forecast ups and downs in the Business Cycle.  Its a measurable economic factor that changes before the economy starts to follow a particular pattern or trend. Leading indicators are used to predict changes in the economy, but are not always accurate.
    
Bond yields are typically a good leading indicator of the market because traders anticipate and speculate trends in the economy.
