BRUSSELS, March 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Conference Board Leading Economic Index® (LEI) for Germany increased 0.6 percent in January to 108.9 (2004 = 100), following a 0.3 percent increase in December and a 0.5 percent increase in November.

At the same time, The Conference Board Coincident Economic Index® (CEI) for Germany, a measure of current economic activity, increased 0.4 percent in January to 108.2 (2004 = 100), following a 0.1 percent decline in December, and a 0.4 percent increase in November.

After trending up for more than a year, the LEI for Germany advanced once again in January. However, its six-month growth rate has slowed compared to earlier last year. In the meantime, the CEI has improved moderately in recent months, and its six-month growth rate has slightly increased. Taken together, the recent behavior of the composite indexes suggests that the current expansion in economic activity should continue in the near term.

About The Conference Board Leading Economic Index® (LEI) for Germany
The composite economic indexes are the key elements in an analytic system designed to signal peaks and troughs in the business cycle. The leading and coincident economic indexes are essentially composite averages of several individual leading or coincident indicators. They are constructed to summarize and reveal common turning point patterns in economic data in a clearer and more convincing manner than any individual component – primarily because they smooth out some of the volatility of individual components.

The seven components of The Conference Board Leading Economic Index® for Germany include:

New Orders, Investment Goods 
Yield Spread cumulated, 10 year minus 3 month
Change in Inventories
Gross Enterprise and Property Income
Stock Prices
New Orders, Residential Construction
Consumer Confidence Index
