Nation's GDP The index predicts future real GDP growth (gross domestic product, adjusted for inflation) based on 11 leading economic and financial indicators. Four of the 11 indicators were positive in July, up from three in June. Positive indicators include hours worked, real capital goods orders, the real money supply and light-vehicle sales, all of which increased. Negative indicators include declines in building permits, stock prices, ISM export orders and the yield curve. Also negative were increases in the AAA corporate bond spread, seasonally adjusted crude oil prices and the real federal funds rate. This model assumes it can take 12 to 15 months for changes in the real federal funds rate to affect economic activity, so it uses the November 2011 — January 2012 rolling average to forecast real GDP in December 2012.
