Leading vs Lagging Indicators

Hi guys,

I am just going through the AM session of the actual 2010 exam and Q4 on Economics has a question regarding leading and lagging economic indicators such as Index of new private housing starts, index of consumer expectations etc… I cant recall having read about those concepts in the material.

Does anyone know if that’s still relevant or was erased from the curriculum?

thx for ur help

Yup, definitely in the CME material where they go through the leading, lagging and coincident indicators

that section deals with economic forecasting using models, indicators and the checklist approach

Don’t worry about that question. Our tutor told us that Q4 A & B in the 2010 mock is not relevant as the syllabus has been changed.
