Business Cycle Indicators

An index of a variety of indicators thought to predict the tops and bottoms of a business cycle. The BCI includes leading, lagging, and coincident indicators in order to provide the most accurate view possible. Nonetheless, many argue that because business cycles are always unpredictable to some degree, the BCI must be taken with a grain of salt. It is published by The Conference Board. See also: CCI, CEO Confidence Index, Help Wanted Advertising Index.
