But did the Conference Board take into account the Hindenburg Omen?...:-)

I forgot to add, has anyone taken another look at the Baltic Dry Index lately?

Seems that there's some good news there...

the biggest driver of US LEI increase was interest rate spread, which is an awfully manipulated figure just now.

i wonder how folks are going to feel when Q2 GDP growth gets revised down by half later this week.

i also wonder how the august stock market performance is going to affect this number for this month.
