What is a Leading Indicator?

A leading indicator is a measurable economic factor or set of data that tends to change before the overall economy. The underlying premise behind leading indicators is that certain economic variables tend to change in advance of broader shifts in the economy. When analyzed collectively, these changes provide a comprehensive picture of the future economic landscape and may help forecast economic activity.


Examples of leading indicators include building permits, weekly initial jobless claims, bank lending standards, manufacturing new orders, and regional Fed business surveys.

How Leading Indicators Guide Portfolio Management


Early Signals
of Changes in the Economy

Leading indicators provide early signals of changes in the economy, allowing investors to take advantage of potential opportunities and manage risk proactively. Early signals can be used to guide asset allocation and position portfolios ahead of potential trend changes.


Eliminate Guesswork
from Investment Decisions

Leading indicators provide a consistent and repeatable framework that helps to remove human emotion and market noise from the decision-making process.


Risk-Adjusted Portfolio Returns
