WLI Drops


A measure of future U.S. economic growth fell in the latest week, and the growth rate weakened on an annualized basis, a research group said on Friday.

The Economic Cycle Research Institute, a New York-based independent forecasting group, said its Weekly Leading Index dropped to 123.9 in the week ended April 13 from 125.9 the previous week.

The index's annualized growth rate dropped to 1.2 percent from a revised 1.7 percent a week earlier. It was originally reported at 1.4 percent.
