08/01/10 - OECD composite leading indicators (CLIs) for November 2009 provide stronger signals of recovery than in last month's assessment. Troughs in the underlying reference series - the index of industrial production - for all major seven countries, except Canada and the United Kingdom, are also visible, and the CLIs for all major seven countries have moved above their long-term trend, implying an expansionary outlook relative to trend (see also interpreting OECD CLIs). The outlook for major non member economies also continues to point to a recovery. etc.
The methodology used to compile OECD CLIs and reference series trend is described in the following document: "OECD system of Composite Leading Indicators".
For a better interpretation of OECD CLI consult the following document: Interpreting OECD Composite Leading Indicators (CLI).
The next publication of the OECD's CLI will be on 5 February 2010.
