Westpac-Melbourne Institute Leading Index September 2015

Elliot Clarke


The six month annualised deviation from trend growth rate in the Westpac-Melbourne Institute Leading Index (which indicates the likely pace of economic activity three to nine months into the future) increased from –1.14% in August to –0.35% in September.

The September Leading Index result suggests that the risks to this forecast are to the downside. (VIEW LINK)
