U.S. leading indicators strengthen in July

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch)
The U.S. continues to expand at a moderate if uneven pace with a chance that growth might speed up later in the year, according to an index that measures the nation’s economic health
The leading economic index rose 0.6% in July to 96.0 — the highest level in five years — after no change in June, the privately run Conference Board said Thursday
Economists polled by MarketWatch had forecast a 0.5% increase
The LEI is a weighted gauge of 10 indicators designed to signal business-cycle peaks and valleys Eight of the 10 components expanded in July, led by the spread on interest rates, availability of credit, stock prices and permits to build new homes
The two categories to show declines were hours worked by manufacturing employees and business orders for long-lasting manufactured goods, the Conference Board said

JACKSON HOLE, Wyo. (MarketWatch) - Atlanta Fed Bank President Dennis Lockhart said Friday that he would back a September taper of the central bank's asset purchase plan as long as data between now and the meeting show the economy on a steady growth path. "I would be supportive of a taper of September as long as the data that come in between now and then basically confirm the path we're on," Lockhart said in an interview on CNBC. "I think the key question is do we have, even at this moderate pace of growth, a sustainable picture, something that is going to continue or is there some risk economy gets knocked off its feet," he said. Lockhart said he still expects a pickup in growth in the second half of the year and into 2014, but noted there were few signs of that yet. "The data [are] not coming in a way that confirm that strong pickup," he said. Growth in the second half could accelerate to a 2.5% rate, while the jobless rate could drop to a 7.2% rate by the end of the year, he said. Lockhart is not a voting member this year. He is seen as one of the most pragmatic Fed officials and often close to the consensus. Lockhart said a showdown over the budget and debt ceiling could damage consumer confidence. He said it was too early to tell if the backup in rates would have an impact on the economy.

JACKSON HOLE, Wyo. (MarketWatch) - The Federal Reserve should be cautious before pulling back the pace of the $85 billion-a-month asset purchase program, said St. Louis Fed President James Bullard on Friday. "I don't think we have to be in any hurry in this situation, inflation is running low, we have mixed data on the economy," Bullard said in an interview on CNBC on the sidelines of the Fed's annual policy conference. While the labor market looks better, gross domestic product has looked "kind of weak" and inflation is low. "I think we can afford to be very deliberate in our decision making here," he said. Bullard said he wants to see some sign that inflation is at least coming back to the central bank's 2% target. Bullard is a voting member of the Fed's policy committee this year.
