ABSTRACT
This article reports that the composite index of leading economic indicators (LEI) rose 0.2% in December, the second straight rise in the index after five monthly declines, the Conference Board reported yesterday. The LEI was up a revised 0.3% in November, originally seen as a 0.2% gain. Economists polled by IFR BondData America predicted LEI would increase 0.1% in December 2004. The weakness in LEI has become somewhat less widespread, and the recent weakness was likely just a pause in the index's upward trend, which began in March 2003, the Conference Board said.
