Leading indicators are widely used tools in business forecasting. Some indicators foreshadow changes in business conditions with a long lead, on average, while other indicators have shorter average leads. This article looks at existing tools in a new way, and concludes that both our total knowledge of business conditions and our forecasting abilities are modestly but usefully increased by maximum use of long-lead indicators in combination with medium-lead indicators.
