09/07/2012 - Composite leading indicators (CLIs), designed to anticipate turning points in economic activity relative to trend, point to an easing of economic activity in most major OECD economies and a more marked slowdown in most major non-OECD economies.
The CLIs for Japan, the United States and Russia remain above long term trend but continue to point to dissipating momentum, especially in the case of Russia.

Moderating growth expected in the OECD area
