While each investment has its specific indicators, the larger U.S. economy always plays some role.

Seattle-area financial advisor firm Pacific Point Advisors has launched a new blog, which will include a quarterly report of the U.S. Economy’s Leading Economic Indicators. This recurring report will monitor the Top 15 leading and lagging indicators, curated into one blog for easy access by investors of all types by marketing consultant Lori Cousineau-Weaver.

Cousineau-Weaver explained the thinking behind the new blog series. “Important data points and trends impact every investment strategy. While each investment has its specific indicators, the larger U.S. economy always plays some role. For this reason, Pacific Point Advisors wanted to start tracking these Top 15 economic indicators.”

The firm’s CEO & CCO Norm Weaver commented, “I’m pleased to be sharing just some of the data we look at on a regular basis, and very glad these Top 15 Indicators will be accessible as a recurring blog series on our website.”

The Top 15 Economic Indicators blog series will track seven leading indicators and eight lagging indicators. The leading indicators include: stock markets, manufacturing activity, inventory levels, retail sales, building permits, housing market, and new business startups, The lagging indicators include: Gross domestic product (GDP), income and wages, unemployment rate, consumer price index (CPI), currency strength, interest rates, balance of trade, and dollar-based commodities like gold and silver. The blog series will be available at the firm’s website, http://www.pacificpointadvisors.com.
