Leading Economic Index For Germany Declines

The Conference Board's index of leading economic indicators for Germany fell a tenth of a percentage point in February, the most recent month for which data are available. The index now stands at 103.1 (1990=100).

In recent months its leading index for Germany has been fluctuating between 0% and 1% annual growth rates, and February's reading suggests that Germany's GDP will likely grow in the months ahead "but at a sluggish rate," says the New York-based business research group.
