Awesome info, very informative.

Does someone know how to put this information into a screen so as to tell us when to buy or sell? Great data, but the trick is to be able to use it.

Michael Mckeown from FL posted over 4 years ago:

I agree with Melvin. This data needs to be presented in a matter that macro decisions can be made. I'm sure the summary data will only give you the buy/sell for a sector, not a stock/fund.

John L from NC posted over 4 years ago:

I agree, great idea, this should be tracked on the home page as key indicators for the economy and investing

Norman Koerner from IL posted over 4 years ago:

I also would like to see this information on the home page, if the data only gives buy/sell for sectors, Great!
I'll take it from there.
All help is appreciated.

I would suggest those of you who want a condensed, updated snapshot of economic data sign up for Econoday's weekly email. It's concise, well written and free:

might also look at the Conference Board's Index of Leading Economic Indicators [LEI]. here is a link: https://www.conference-board.org/data/bcicountry.cfm?cid=1

You should use the labor participation rate which shows what percent of the adult population is currently employed. It is a better indication of how many are "pushing the wagon" since the employment rate has been watered down to make politicians look good.
