BRUSSELS, Jan. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Conference Board Leading Economic Index® (LEI) for Germany was unchanged in November at 103.1 (2004 = 100), following a 0.5 percent increase in October, and a 0.6 percent decline in September.
At the same time, The Conference Board Coincident Economic Index® (CEI) for Germany, a measure of current economic activity, was unchanged in November at 106.7 (2004 = 100), following a 0.3 percent decline in October, and a 0.3 percent decline in September.
The LEI has improved slightly over the last two months, but its six month growth rate is still in negative territory. Meanwhile, the six-month growth rate for the CEI remains in negative territory with most of the coincident indicators declining over the past six months. Taken together, the behavior of both the leading and coincident indexes suggests that economic activity is unlikely to strengthen over the near term.
